I want to start by saying, i am not writing this with any political or religious purpose. 13 years ago today, a horrible attack took place, and no matter what your beliefs are, you have to recognize that.
2,977 people lost their lives. 19 were hijackers. 227 innocent people died on the planes. 431 firefighters and emergency response team members died trying to save lives in the city. The rest were civilians, either killed by the blast, trapped inside and suffocated or crushed or burned, or killed from the fall after the jumped from the windows. thousands more were injured.
No matter where you are from, no matter what you believe, I ask that you just take a minute, sometime today, and remember.
