In case none of you knew, 4 years ago today, terrorists from the group Al-Qaida attacked New York City and Washington D.S. with hijacked commercial jets. Two of them were flown in to each tower of the World Trade Center in New York City. Both towers completely collapsed. In Washington D.C. another jet was flown in to the Western Wing of the Pentagon. A fourth plane was hijacked, but the passengers were able to stop the terrorists from destroying any buildings, although all those on board died when the plane crashed in to a field.

Some stats worth looking at:

Please discuss this here. As a note, if I see anyone making inappropriate comments, I will personally ban them for 3 days. I don't care if I have the authorization or not.
 
Mino, you can make that a 5 day ban. it would be terrible to see anyone talking about this date as a joke, or anything of the such. Those stats are amazing. The amount of death was catostrophic. I know someone who lost a good friend in the Towers, and it was hard for her to get over.
 
It truely is a sad time and one of the things that we will remember the rest of our lives. I just hope this sort of thing doesn't happen again.

But I think we also need to remeber those who fought in Iraq and who died there because this is the event that sent them there.

I have a friend who lost his older brother in the war, and I fear he is scared for life now.
 
the ood thing is Disney world is probaly having a parade calling it one of the happiests events on earth. (they do that every day I think)
 
Yeah, I still remember that day, I was in 5th grade by that.

lets all give a minute of silence for all those who died in that terrorist attack.

*is silent for one minute*

Yes, this was definetly one of America's darkest hours. Almost 3,000 people dead. I never believed that anything like this could happen to us, but me, and a lot of others, had realized that we are not invincible. We are vulnerable sometimes. I am glad that we have gone out into the Middle East to stop terrorism, we should make them pay for what they've done to our country, and others as well.
