‘Unthinkable’: The terrorist attack on Sept. 11, 2001

Numerous Americans going to always remember where they have been on September. 11, 2001.

We raced to our TVs & changed up the volume on the radio.

The pictures we saw have been horrific & America vowed to “never forget.”

The headline around the front page of The Patriot-Information stated:

“SEPTEMBER 11, 2001: UNTHINKABLE // In a day of mind-numbing horror, America seen as the Globe Trade Centre has been destroyed, the Pentagon has been assaulted, planes smashed & thousands have been died as terrorists shook our country to its core.”

On that day the extremist crowd al-Qaida assaulted the United States by hijacking 4 airliners & crashing them, killing almost 3,000 innocent citizens.

Companies closed. Events have been canceled. Everybody has been jittery.
