On Tuesday September 11, 2001 starting at 8:46 AM, terrorists hijacked four American Airlines planes. One landed in a field in Shanksville, Pennsylvania, one hit the Pentagon, and the two others hit the twin towers, known as the World Trade Center. The worst damage was done to the twin towers, which both fell to the ground. Around 3,000 people died. Some tried to escape and failed, some who were trapped or too badly injured could not be saved, and some took their own lives by jumping from the buildings because they had no chance of survival if they stayed. Here at Parks to show our sympathy for the people affected by this tragedy, we signed our names on a poster that reads “We will never forget.” The poster is now hanging in one of the main hallways in between room 203 and 204, so we will always remember the tragedy of September 11, 2001.
