9/11 is an important day to remember because America was attacked by terrorists. These terrorists hijacked four planes. The passengers on these planes were brave and tried to fight back. They risked their lives to save other lives that day by not letting them fly the plane into the Capitol. Unfortunately a lot of people died that day. Two of these planes crashed into the Twin Towers. Flames were everywhere and innocent people were trapped inside. Some of the people began jumping out of the windows to get out of the builldings before they collapsed on top of them. Some people were trying to call home but there was no reception. 9/11 was a very tragic day.


People helped others on 9/11 on by helping others out of the buildings that had injured people, and by calling in people in the planes that was in danger. Some planes purposely crashed into the twin towers and started a fire which caused them to collapse. After the buildings fell, people watched as the giant cloud of smoke swept across NYC. We can remember by visiting the SI childrens museum Ladder 11 exhibit which was made in the name of Richard J.Kelly, one of the firefighters who lost their life for some else's. The heroes are the firefighters who risked their lives to go into falling buildings to save people, to make sure they are ok, and not even worrying about their own protection.
