One of the most defining moment in the American History was during the 9/11 terrorist attack on the World Trade Center and at the Pentagon. Nearly 3, 000 people lost their lives after terrorists hijacked four commercial airlines to strike targets in the United States. The country mourned. Flags were half-staffed and people around the world stood in silence during that day.
The great tragedy that befell on September 11, 2011 left the nation in deep turmoil. Grievance and pain were deeply felt. But if there was one good thing on earth the tragedy brought, it was the birth of many ‘heroes’. Fallen firefighters, policemen, rescue workers who have fallen in the course of saving many lives.
Ten years after the infamous day, we want to specially remember the men and women in uniforms and all the common people who helped others on the attack sites during the actual disaster days and those who cleaned up in the aftermath of 9/11.
Dressed in courage and selflessness, these people saved lives, helped multitudes of people and did tremendous task of clearing all the dead bodies, rubble, debris from the destroyed buildings and aircrafts. There were 346 people in duty that died that day. Some were found, some still missing.
The heroic first responders of Ground Zero which include police and firefighters, understood what adversity truly means that day and then overcome it. Firemen made their way through an inferno that was once the World Trade Center towers. Images of firefighters walking over heated debris forever seared into to the memories of many.
Today, The National September 11 Memorial is built as a tribute to the nearly 3,000 people killed in the terror attacks of September 11, 2011. The memorial site sits at the World Trade Center site, near Shanksville. Twin reflecting pools sit within the footprints where the Twin Towers once stood. Names of every person who died in the 9/11 attack (as well as the six people killed in the WTC bombing in 1993), are inscribed into the bronze panels edging the pools. A strong reminder of a day filled of horror and heroism.
