9/11      20th Anniversary

Tuesday, September 11, 2001

Saturday marks the 20th anniversary of the 9/11 terrorist attacks where 105 minutes changed our lives forever. In all, 2,977 people lost their lives and thousands were injured or later developed illnesses connected to the attacks.

8:46 a.m. American Airlines Flight 11 hits the North Tower of the World Trade Center.

9:03 a.m. United Airlines Flight 175 hits the South Tower of the World Trade Center.

9:37 a.m. American Airlines Flight 77 crashes into the west side of the Pentagon.

9:59 a.m. The South Tower of the World Trade Center collapses.

10:03 a.m. United Airlines Flight 93 crashes in a field near Shanksville, Pennsylvania—missing its intended target of what’s believed to be either the White House or U.S. Capitol.

10:28 a.m. The North Tower of the World Trade Center collapses.

As we reflect on the attacks that dramatically changed the U.S. and honor those who lost their lives, it’s important to remember that with each story of sorrow and pain came one of hope, courage and heroism. On the darkest day, our nation came together under the mantra, “United We Stand.”  That’s why today, we take a moment to remember, reflect and stand united to honor the memory of the victims and recognize the heroism of first responders.
