Twenty-two years have passed since September 11, 2001. Twenty-two years since terrorists hijacked four airplanes to carry out suicide attacks in the United States. Almost 3000 people were killed and even more had their lives and families forever disrupted.
Many of us remember where we were when two planes hit the Twin Towers of the World Trade Center in New York. We remember reacting when told a plane had crashed into the Pentagon. Together, we mourned and praised the bravery of the passengers who revolted on a fourth plane, causing it to crash in rural Pennsylvania rather than reaching its target of the United States Capitol or White House.
Twenty-two years have passed, but we remember. We must remember.
