9/11's 20th Anniversary, and how We Will Never Forget

Even though I wasn’t alive at the time. Thinking about the fact that, that morning 246 passengers got up, went to the airport and boarded their flights having no idea of what was about to happen next, and that the evening of September 10 or the morning of September 11th would be their last time seeing their spouses, friends and children and for all the people working in both the towers along with all the first responders. It touched me in a way I’ve have had yet to feel.


Let us remember the flight crew, passengers, the people working in the World Trade Center and the Pentagon and to all the first responders who made the sacrifice to come out from the safety of their homes and save the lives of innocent people and not know if they themselves were going to make it back.

9/11 is a day that we as a country will never forget. I personally grew up only ~25 minutes east of Manhattan, close enough that I can see 1 World Trade Center from my high school field.
RIP to all the people who lost their lives 20 years ago today ♥️

@JarrettFlies created a beautiful flight plan earlier today and I wanted to share it

RIP to all the innocent people who lost their lives in this horrendous incident, may the fundamentalists get to see what destruction their intolerant ideology brings on the face of the earth and may rationality and knowledge brings out the best in everyone so that we leave in peace and prosper.

God bless America 🇺🇸

“Blessed are the peacemakers: for they shall be called the children of god.” - Matthew 5:9

We shall never forget the brave men and women on the day of 9/11/2001 nor shall we forget all the innocent people who have unwillingly gave their lives due to the acts of terror on American soil.

I think it’s time for something more positive here: while it is a bummer that we, avgeeks, can’t enter the cockpits in flight, it is for a good reason and, along with the protocols after the Germanwings flight, making a flight essentially impossible to be deliberately crashed. All those lives definitely were not lost in vain, and contributed to making aviation safer, and a lot safer. A day that shall never be forgotten.

Yes 9/11 introduced a major flaw in airport security.
Federal government in US and worldwide upgraded security worldwide at airports and other areas to ensure a repeat of this does not happen again.

Terrorist tried to take down the WTC twice. Once in February 26 1993 . Using explosives they caused severe damage but was unsuccessful in taking it down. They succeeded in taking down the towers on 9/11 using airplanes as missiles.
