On September 11, 2001, the terrorist attack killed 2,996 people immediately. This number includes the 2,977 victims and the 19 hijackers who caused the attacks. Of these 2,996 people, 246 people died on the airliners that flew into the World Trade Center, Pentagon and the field in Pennsylvania.
Left behind were family, friends, and everyone who lived and loved the people who were killed that fateful day. Do you remember where you were when you heard the news? I remember standing in our wood shop going to get bakery items out of the freezer, and over the radio I heard an announcement of a plane that hit the Twin Towers in New York City. I was alarmed, and ran inside to check on our children. My husband and I were both standing in the living room when we observed the second plane live on TV hit the second tower. It just brought me to my knees in tears. Everyone who lived through that day has a different experience. When you looked up into the sky it was silent. Even through such a horrible tragic event, God was there, he is always good, and love will always rule.
