Birthdays And Anniversaries For September 11th + 911 Remembrance Day
If this is your birthday, congratulations! Also a year older today, Charles Kelley, born in Savannah, Georgia, in 1981. He co-founds Lady Antebellum, a trio that snags five Grammy awards in 2011. The act goes platinum with "Need You Now," "Just A Kiss," "I Run To You," "Downtown" and "American Honey". Happy 34th, Charles! This Is 911 Remembrance Day!
On the morning of September 11, 2001, nineteen Islamic al-Qaeda militants hijacked four planes. The hijackings occurred from Boston, Newark and Washington airports. The planes selected were long distance flights, which would have more fuel in the tanks.
One plane each hit the north and south towers of the World Trade Center in New York city. The planes and engulfing firestorm, ultimately brought down both towers.
A third plane hit the Pentagon in Washington, DC.
The fourth hijacked plane ultimately crashed in a field in Shanksville, PA. Passengers on the plane learned of the fate of the other planes, and unsuccessfully attempted to take back control of the plane from the suicidal the hijackers. Everyone aboard died.
In total, thousands were killed.
On this, the 14th anniversary of 911, we encourage you to spend a few minutes reflecting upon this event, and praying for the victims who died, and their families and friends.
