Seventeen years ago today, the unthinkable happened on American soil. The United States became the victim of a horrific crime on humanity when it was attacked on September 11, 2001.
Almost every American can remember that day as if it were yesterday. I remember it well. I received a phone call from a friend early that morning asking me to turn on the news. I was shocked to see that a jet airliner had hit one of the Twin Towers in New York City. We discussed several possibilities as to what lead to the crash. Did the pilot have a heart attack? Or did the plane malfunction?
It wasn’t until I was looking at the screen did I see the second plane come around the bend straight for the second building. My reaction was simple, “Whoa, this is bad. Amiee, America has been attacked!”
