History- On September 11, 2001, 19 militants associated with the Islamic extremist group al-Qaeda hijacked four airliners and carried out suicide attacks against targets in the United States.
Two of the planes were flown into the towers of the World Trade Center in New York City, a third plane hit the Pentagon just outside Washington, D.C., and the fourth plane crashed in a field in Pennsylvania.
Often referred to as 9/11, the attacks resulted in extensive death and destruction, triggering major U.S. initiatives to combat terrorism and defining the presidency of George W. Bush. Over 3,000 people were killed during the attacks in New York City and Washington, D.C., including more than 400 police officers and firefighters.
As we stand a little more diligently watching our borders 11 years after our Nations worst tragedy, we take time to say a pray for all those we lost, their families who still grieve and all the troops who continue to serve and protect us around the world.
I must say that feeling safe and being safe is up to each American individual. We can no longer blindly expect that the Government will protect us. As with the hero’s on flight 93 who saved us further lose with their actions we too must do our part to ensure that our country stays safe.
Since 9/11 200,000 people have been murdered in the u.s.a. A woman is raped every 2 minutes in the u.s.a. We have spent 3 trillion dollars killing people in iraq, afghan, pakistan and yemen but the killings still continue in the u.s.a. TSA has not intercepted one terrorist trying to board a plane.
People continue to commit mass killings at schools, churches, movie theaters, and malls. I do not feel any safer in the u.s.a. 11 years after 9/11.
Here’s my question to you: How much safer are you in America 11 years after 9/11?
