It's crazy to think that tomorrow will mark 15 years since the 9/11 terrorist attacks. Such a tragic day for America.
On September 11, 2001, 19 militants associated with the Islamic extremist group al-Qaeda hijacked four airliners and carried out suicide attacks against targets in the United States. Two of the planes were flown into the towers of the World Trade Center in New York City, a third plane hit the Pentagon just outside Washington, D.C., and the fourth plane crashed in a field in Pennsylvania. Often referred to as 9/11, the attacks resulted in extensive death and destruction, triggering major U.S. initiatives to combat terrorism and defining the presidency of George W. Bush. Over 3,000 people were killed during the attacks in New York City and Washington, D.C., including more than 400 police officers and firefighters.
Today, we workout for something SIGNIFICANTLY larger than ourselves; it is to honor those who lost their lives, who lost their families, who lost their friends, and to honor those who still today, protect our Country. Freedom is NOT FREE.
God Bless America!
