It’s been 11 years now since many of us watched in disbelief as series of events unfolded on Sept. 11, 2001 on the east coast – two planes hitting the World Trade Centers in New York City, a third plane hitting the Pentagon and the crash of United Flight 93 in a field in Pennsylvania. More than 3,000 people died, according to a report on History.com.
Each year, Sept. 11 is day in which many people pause to remember and honor those lost. In New York City, there will be a ceremony marking the 11th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks webcast at 7:30 a.m. CST (8:30 a.m. EST) Tuesday morning.
On the 10th anniversary last year, Patch shared how Sept. 11, 2001 impacted one Glendora native, a war veteran eager to serve his country after 9/11, but returned home with devastating injuries.
