September 11 Memorials
By Joyce Furstenau
  

1     Construction of the Reflecting Absence Memorial, March 2009
 
2     September 11, 2001 remains one of the darkest days in the history of America. On that day, Al-Qaeda terrorists crashed two airliners into the Twin Towers of the New York World Trade Center. A third plane crashed into the Pentagon in Washington, D.C. later that morning. A fourth jet was headed towards another target in Washington, D.C. The plane was forced down by passengers near Shanksville, Pennsylvania. There were no survivors on any of these flights. All together 2,974 victims and 19 hijackers died in these attacks.
 
3     In the days following the attacks, memorials were held around the world. Since then, permanent memorials have been erected all over the country to honor those who lost their lives in this tragedy. The damage to the Pentagon was cleared and repaired within a year. The Pentagon Memorial was built on that site.
