September 11

 

A solemn day across the USA in remembrance of 9/11–now known as Patriot’s Day–with a number of events and ceremonies being held throughout metro Detroit.

Nearly 3,000 people were killed in the attacks on Sept. 11, 2001 when terrorists hijacked four commercial passenger airplanes in a coordinated attack over several areas in the U.S. Two planes were crashed into the Twin Towers in New York, a third plane crashed into the Pentagon in Arlington County, Virginia. The fourth plane, United Airlines Flight 93, initially was steered toward Washington, D.C., but crashed into a field in Stonycreek Township near Shanksville, Pennsylvania, after its passengers tried to overcome the hijackers.
