Remembering 9/11

The tragedy of 9/11 is something that will stay in the hearts of Americans, forever. Eighteen years ago, today, terrorists hijacked four planes and flew them into the Twin Towers, the Pentagon, and a field in Pennsylvania after passengers’ regained control of Flight 93. There were 2,606 people who died at the World Trade Centre and the surrounding area. Both of the towers collapsed after the impact of the planes, the debris from this caused many deaths and injury from the streets below. This day is important to America because it changed many systems that we see today. After 9/11, the airports rules for what can be brought and the protocol got changed significantly. Our airports today are much stricter about what and what cannot be brought onto the planes, and we now have x-ray machines that can see through clothing which everyone has to go through before they can get on their flight. We always will remember this tragedy known as, 9/11.
