Yesterday being September 11, 2016, marked the 15th anniversary of the terrorist attacks on New York in 2001. Four commercial planes were marked for targets of which three hit their mark and one crashed in a field in rural Pennsylvania killing a total of 2,977 innocent people. A day which we will never forget.
The terrorist thought they had won, however being proud Americans we went on. We have already rebuilt one of the Twin Towers. One World Trade Center towers a symbolic 1,776 ft. tall, higher than any other building in the country. The other being 1,270 ft. will be the second tallest and is slated for completion in 2020.
The first new office building to rise at Ground Zero after 9/11 was 7 World Trade Center, which opened in 2006. Standing 52-stories high it is now dwarfed by its taller new neighbors. Also in the space where the Twin Towers once stood is now a Memorial and Museum. A sure sign that America always rebuilds.
In another show of strength. The commercial flights that were used in the attacks went on par schedule yesterday. In the U.S. alone an average of 1.7 million passengers flew on over 30,000 scheduled flights. Take a moment to thank all the pilots and attendants who serve us every day on those flights.
Our military being the best in the world is always on the four front of defending all our freedoms. If we haven’t already, please take a moment to remember and give respect and appreciation to all those who have fallen in our quest for freedom.
In America, in life or in business, adversity will always show its evil head. However, it is not necessarily what happens that defines us it is how we respond that shows our true character. Yesterday marked 15 years since that horrific event, however, America has always shown and will continue to show its strength knowing that The show must go on.
