The September 11 Memorial is dedicated to all the lives lost in the 2001 terrorists' attacks on Americans

Though years have past, no American of age to realize the enormity of the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001 has forgotten the suffering and destruction of that day. Though many experienced it all only through images projected on a television screen, the horror of the actions of a few resulting in great agony to so many was unbelievable and heartbreaking. There was much pain in personal loss for thousands and as a nation for millions in the assault on our country.

The September attacks were a series of four suicide attacks that were committed in the United States on September 11, 2001, coordinated to strike the areas of New York City and Washington, D.C. On that Tuesday morning, 19 terrorists from the Islamist militant group al-Qaeda hijacked four passenger jets. The hijackers intentionally piloted two of those planes, American Airlines Flight 11 and United Airlines Flight 175, into the North and South towers of the World Trade Center complex in New York City; both towers collapsed within two hours.
