Tragedy of September 11th

Kevin Scales

The Day the Air filled with Dust.

On the morning of September 11th, 4 airlines were hijacked by 19 al-Qaeda terrorists. Two were crashed into both of the World Trade Centers, 1 into the Pentagon, and the last flight, Flight 93, in an attempt to regain control of the plane by the passengers, crashed into a field in Pennsylvania killing all aboard. At 9:59 am, the South Tower collapsed and at 10:28 am the North Tower collapsed.

At the end of the day, 2996 people would never take another breath.
