9/11 15 years anniversary – 360 – 11/09/16

It has been 15 years since the attack on the Twin Towers in New York. Services are held across the United States and the world. In New York 15 years ago today the Two World Trade Center Towers fell, because 4 planes were hijacked by Islamist extremists. Two of the planes were crashed into the Twin Towers and another one crashed into the Pentagon and one crashed in Pennsylvania. The Pentagon is the top military building in Washington DC.

The first plane crashed at 08:46 local time. President Obama held a moment of silence at this time. He held the minute of silence for the victims and families that were involved with the fall of the twin towers. The fall of the Twin Towers which will never be forgotten. Almost 3,000 people died that day.

I chose this article, because 9/11 has affected the whole world and today was its 15 year anniversary. All the victims names were spoken at a special memorial in New York. This summer I saw where the Twin Tower once stood and it is unbelievable how people could just crash into it. The reason I decided to share this article is because 9/11 has affected everyone in the whole world and there should not be one person in this room who does not know what happened today. We should acre about this because of how America was affected and how the whole world was affected.
