It is hard to beleive it has been fourteen years.
Fourteen years ago today, terrorists hijacked four passenger planes with two slamming into New York City’s World Trade Center and a third one into the Pentagon outside Washington.
A fourth jetliner crash-landed on an empty field in Pennsylvania.
By the time it was over, the hijackers had killed 2,977 people in the deadliest terrorist attack on American soil.
Here is a compilation video from the Glenn Beck Radio Program that captures the time that we all remember so clearly so many years later…
Many tribute events have been occuring today to mark the occasion.
At one of them, outside the Justice Department headquarters in Washington, a crew planted a pear tree — an offspring of a tree at the World Trade Center plaza that survived the buildings’ fall. The original tree stands at the National September 11 Memorial in New York.
Attorney General Loretta Lynch, speaking at the ceremony, said the tree is a reminder that “we can endure, we can prevail, and we, too, can bloom again.”
