9/11 10th Year Anniversary - Memorial

On September 11, 2001 the world lost over 3,000 of its citizens in a coordinated act of terrorism that took place in three places on American soil -- at the World Trade Center Plaza (New York City, New York), at the Pentagon (Arlington, Virginia), and in a rural field near Shanksville, Pennsylvania.

A group of hijackers, posing as law abiding persons, forcefully took command of four U.S. commercial long-haul jets that took off from East Coast airports and bound for West Coast destinations. As a result of their evil actions, American Airlines Flight 11 was flown into the upper floors of the World Trade Center - North Tower, United Airlines Flight 175 was flown into the upper floors of the adjacent World Trade Center - South Tower shortly after. Moments later, American Airlines Flight 77 was flown into the West Wall of the Pentagon (Headquarters of the U.S. Department of Defense). As a result of the courageous actions of several passengers, a fourth airplane, United Airlines Flight 93 was prevented from striking yet another target, and ultimately crashed in a rural field near Shanksville, Pennsylvania.

Below are the names of the innocent victims of this evil act of terror. They --the victims-- were fathers, mothers, daughters and sons, grandparents, and loved ones from all households and works of life. They simply woke up that fateful morning -- hoping to live another day of productive lives. On this 10th Year Anniversary, we celebrate their lives and honor their memory. Also, we remember the men and women of the military, as well as members of U.S. diplomatic missions around the world, who are still today in harm's way, and many of whom have since (9/11) made the ultimate sacrifice in service to their country. Their sacrifice preserves the freedom of all of us.
