Patriot Day means so much to our family. It's a day we honor and remember. It's a day we pray and reflect. It's a day we remember the thousands of innocent victims who died (and the loved ones they left behind) on September 11, 2001.
The passengers and crew of American Airlines Flight 11, which hit the North Tower at 8:46 a.m.:
The passengers and crew of United Airlines Flight 175, which hit the South Tower at 9:02 a.m.:
The thousands of people in the World Trade Center's and those on the ground. I can't imagine the terror, panic, and suffering these individuals endured.
The passengers and crew of American Airlines Flight 77, which hit the Pentagon at 9:38 a.m.:
The passengers and crew of United Airlines Flight 93, which dove into a Pennyslvania field at 10:06 a.m.:
The brave police officers and firefighter's who risked their lives and to those who lost their lives (even in the days after) trying to save others:
Our family will never forget!
When my 10 year old daughter asked me how many people died on 9/11, I knew it was close to three thousand, but I wanted to have a more definate answer. I found it and would like to share it with you.
