Its now 12
years since Sept. 11, 2001, At 8:46 a.m, America was changed forever.

A passenger plane which had left
Boston bound for Los Angeles crashed into

the north tower of the World Trade
Center in New York. As news crews showed the American Airlines plane sticking
out of the iconic building, a stunned national audience initially thought it
might be some sort of horrible accident. But when another plane struck the
south tower just 17 minutes later, the awful truth could no longer be avoided.
This had been an act of terrorism, conducted by terrorist hijackers on
unthinkable suicide missions.

One of the
darkest days in American history would get worse in the ensuing hours. Yet
another plane would crash into the Pentagon at 9:37 a.m. and a fourth —
believed bound for Washington — went down in a field in Shanksville, Pa., at
10:03 a.m., after brave passengers fought with hijackers and forced the plane
to crash.

Meanwhile, at the World Trade
Center, office workers poured down the smoky stairs of the burning buildings,
passing New York firefighters and NYPD and Port Authority police on their way
down. As burning jet fuel melted the buildings’ steel skeletons, the awful
realization sank in that the towers, which terrorists had tried to bring down
in 1993, were not going to withstand the attack. Office workers trapped above
the point of impact and unable to flee down the stairs jumped out of windows,
some holding hands.
By 10:30 a.m., both World Trade
Center towers had collapsed. Some 2,606 people, including more than 400
firefighters, police and medics, died in New York. All 246 passengers aboard
the four planes died, and 125 were killed at the Pentagon. A total of 2,977
innocent people died, and all 19 hijackers, who America would soon learn were
part of a twisted Al Qaeda plot, became martyrs to their warped cause.
In the ensuing years, America
fought Al Qaeda all over the globe, losing thousands of brave military men and
women and spending hundreds of billions of dollars on a war on terror some
believe may never be fully won. It all began on this date, burned indelibly
into the memories of all Americans some dozen years ago.
