Eight years ago, terror and heartbreak struck the U.S.  Family and friends were killed.  And fear entered the minds of Americans.

Eight years ago four planes were hijacked and used for suicide and murder on the east coast of the U.S.  Two planes were used to crash into the Twin Towers of the World Trade Center in New York, one hit the Pentagon in Virginia just outside of Washington D.C., and the other tried to hit the White House in Washington D.C.  Sadly, the planes were successful in hitting the Twin Towers.  The two buildings burned and crumbled to the ground in minutes.  People who had been working on the higher levels of the buildings had not managed to escape, which sadly resulted in death.  The plane aimed toward the Pentagon also succeed.  Luckily, some people were able to escape and survive. 

As for the plane aimed at the White House, luckily did not hit its target.  When the passengers on the plane found out that it had been taken over by Al-Qaeda terrorists, they reacted quickly.  They were able to gain control of the plane and steer it away from the White House.  They crashed it into a nearby field without harming anyone who wasn’t on the plane.

A total of 2,993 people died on September 11, 2001 from the attacks.  This includes the hijackers, people in the buildings, and the passengers on the plane.  Also, a few people died from lung disease that was caused by the dust created by the collapsing of the Twin Towers.  Many friends and family were lost.

People were afraid that more attacks were under way.  People started to panic and get worried.  Luckily, nothing else happened that day.  After everyone realized they were safe, they started to grieve for loved ones.  People were eager for bodies to be identified and find out if family had survived.

The United States grieved for months after 9-11.  Memorials were held across the country.  Names were listed on TV and in newspapers. 

Tomorrow will be the eighth anniversary of September eleventh.  Tomorrow people will be thinking about lost loved ones and people who died in such a horrible way, a terrorist attack.  Take some time to think about and mourn for everybody who lost their life because of some stupid, evil men.  Be thankful that more people weren’t hurt and thank the passengers on the forth plane for saving the White House.  Make tomorrow a day of memorial.

Thanks everyone for reading this and I hope you enjoyed it.  Never forget what happened on September 11th.  Here are a few links to websites about 9-11 and also pictures from 9-11.  Check them out and let me know what you think of them and this.  Thanks!!!
