  • | Anniversary, 911, World Trade center, terrorist, Washinton DC, Shanksville, PA, New York
    - 9/11 Timeline

    On September 11, 2001, 19 militants associated with the Islamic extremist group al-Qaeda hijacked four airliners and carried out suicide attacks against targets in the United States. Two of the planes were flown into the towers of the World Trade Center in New York City, a third plane hit the Pentagon just outside Washington, D.C., and the fourth plane crashed in a field in Pennsylvania. Often referred to as 9/11, the attacks resulted in extensive death and destruction, triggering major U.S. initiatives to combat terrorism and defining the presidency of George W. Bush. Over 3,000 people were killed during the attacks in New York City and Washington, D.C., including more than 400 police officers and firefighters.

    On September 11, 2001, at 8:45 a.m. on a clear Tuesday morning, an American Airlines Boeing 767 loaded with 20,000 gallons of jet fuel crashed into the north tower of the World Trade Center in New York City. The impact left a gaping, burning hole near the 80th floor of the 110-story skyscraper, instantly killing hundreds of people and trapping hundreds more in higher floors. As the evacuation of the tower and its twin got underway, television cameras broadcasted live images of what initially appeared to be a freak accident. Then, 18 minutes after the first plane hit, a second Boeing 767–United Airlines Flight 175–appeared out of the sky, turned sharply toward the World Trade Center and sliced into the south tower near the 60th floor. The collision caused a massive explosion that showered burning debris over surrounding buildings and the streets below. America was under attack.
    Did You Know?

    September 11, 2001, was the deadliest day in history for New York City firefighters: 343 were killed.

    The attackers were Islamic terrorists from Saudi Arabia and several other Arab nations. Reportedly financed by Saudi fugitive Osama bin Laden’s al-Qaeda terrorist organization, they were allegedly acting in retaliation for America’s support of Israel, its involvement in the Persian Gulf War and its continued military presence in the Middle East. Some of the terrorists had lived in the United States for more than a year and had taken flying lessons at American commercial flight schools. Others had slipped into the country in the months before September 11 and acted as the “muscle” in the operation. The 19 terrorists easily smuggled box-cutters and knives through security at three East Coast airports and boarded four flights bound for California, chosen because the planes were loaded with fuel for the long transcontinental journey. Soon after takeoff, the terrorists commandeered the four planes and took the controls, transforming ordinary commuter jets into guided missiles.

    As millions watched the events unfolding in New York, American Airlines Flight 77 circled over downtown Washington, D.C., and slammed into the west side of the Pentagon military headquarters at 9:45 a.m. Jet fuel from the Boeing 757 caused a devastating inferno that led to the structural collapse of a portion of the giant concrete building. All told, 125 military personnel and civilians were killed in the Pentagon, along with all 64 people aboard the airliner.

    Less than 15 minutes after the terrorists struck the nerve center of the U.S. military, the horror in New York took a catastrophic turn for the worse when the south tower of the World Trade Center collapsed in a massive cloud of dust and smoke. The structural steel of the skyscraper, built to withstand winds in excess of 200 miles per hour and a large conventional fire, could not withstand the tremendous heat generated by the burning jet fuel. At 10:30 a.m., the other Trade Center tower collapsed. Close to 3,000 people died in the World Trade Center and its vicinity, including a staggering 343 firefighters and paramedics, 23 New York City police officers and 37 Port Authority police officers who were struggling to complete an evacuation of the buildings and save the office workers trapped on higher floors. Only six people in the World Trade Center towers at the time of their collapse survived. Almost 10,000 others were treated for injuries, many severe.

    Meanwhile, a fourth California-bound plane–United Flight 93–was hijacked about 40 minutes after leaving Newark International Airport in New Jersey. Because the plane had been delayed in taking off, passengers on board learned of events in New York and Washington via cell phone and Airfone calls to the ground. Knowing that the aircraft was not returning to an airport as the hijackers claimed, a group of passengers and flight attendants planned an insurrection. One of the passengers, Thomas Burnett Jr., told his wife over the phone that “I know we’re all going to die. There’s three of us who are going to do something about it. I love you, honey.” Another passenger–Todd Beamer–was heard saying “Are you guys ready? Let’s roll” over an open line. Sandy Bradshaw, a flight attendant, called her husband and explained that she had slipped into a galley and was filling pitchers with boiling water. Her last words to him were “Everyone’s running to first class. I’ve got to go. Bye.”

    The passengers fought the four hijackers and are suspected to have attacked the cockpit with a fire extinguisher. The plane then flipped over and sped toward the ground at upwards of 500 miles per hour, crashing in a rural field in western Pennsylvania at 10:10 a.m. All 45 people aboard were killed. Its intended target is not known, but theories include the White House, the U.S. Capitol, the Camp David presidential retreat in Maryland or one of several nuclear power plants along the eastern seaboard.

    At 7 p.m., President George W. Bush, who had spent the day being shuttled around the country because of security concerns, returned to the White House. At 9 p.m., he delivered a televised address from the Oval Office, declaring, “Terrorist attacks can shake the foundations of our biggest buildings, but they cannot touch the foundation of America. These acts shatter steel, but they cannot dent the steel of American resolve.” In a reference to the eventual U.S. military response he declared, “We will make no distinction between the terrorists who committed these acts and those who harbor them.”

    Operation Enduring Freedom, the American-led international effort to oust the Taliban regime in Afghanistan and destroy Osama bin Laden’s terrorist network based there, began on October 7. Within two months, U.S. forces had effectively removed the Taliban from operational power, but the war continued, as U.S. and coalition forces attempted to defeat a Taliban insurgency campaign based in neighboring Pakistan. Osama bin Laden, the mastermind behind the September 11th attacks, remained at large until May 2, 2011, when he was finally tracked down and killed by U.S. forces at a hideout in Abbottabad, Pakistan. In June 2011, President Barack Obama announced the beginning of large-scale troop withdrawals from Afghanistan, with a final withdrawal of U.S. forces tentatively scheduled for 2014.

    - As meaningful today as it was when it was written. 14 years ago... by New York Times Bestselling author Randy Wayne White...

    An Open Letter To He Who Hides Behind the Casket of Innocents

    On Tuesday morning, September 11th, 2001, you delivered onto our nation yet another public invitation, and then, characteristically, fled into he shadows. Because your invitation was written on the flesh of innocents, and with the blood of our heroes, it demands a response.

    A week ago, most of us would have declined out of indifference, out of ignorance. We were an insulated people, secure in the triumphs of our forefathers.
    Not today. Not ever again. In the last few hours, we have aged a generation. Our indifference lies beneath rubble in a great city, so your invitation - as much as we loath your methods - is now most welcome. We welcome it because you have forced us to understand that the event which you press upon us is inevitable and unavoidable. You have invited us to a Day of Reckoning. We accept. That Day of Reckoning will soon come.
    If our response seems unexpectedly strong, it may be because we were never the people you thought us to be. You have said publicly that you believe Americans to be weak, spoiled by our own wealth. You have said that we lack courage, resolve and morality. You have said that we are a mongrel nation, a nation divided by racial hatred and class warfare.
    Perhaps it would be good to explain to you who we really are, and so thereby remind ourselves what our heritage demands of us.

    We are the sons and daughters of every race, all religions, the world's yearning masses, joined between two oceans and by a passion for self-determination and freedom. Don't assume, because we use hyphens as identifiers, that a hyphen can divide us. Our own history proves, again and again, that in times of national emergency, we are all defined by one word, not two: American.

    In us runs the blood of revolutionaries and explorers, of farmers, immigrants and Algonquin statesmen, of train barons and train robbers, and of individuals who, though chained to slave ships, refused to bow down as slaves. We are the people who risked the gallows to create a sanctuary of earth that, for the first time in man's history, guaranteed religious freedom to all, as well as life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. A mongrel nation? Absolutely.

    You may have forgotten the first time you spoke those words. It was in Berlin, 1939.

    We forgot, too, for a time. No longer.

    Do we lack courage, resolve and morality? You will soon curse the day that you doubted us. We are the 50,000 who took our strong convictions to earth at Gettysburg. We are the thousands of white crosses that rest where poppies grow at Flanders Field in France. We are Doolittle's Raiders and Patton's blood and guts. We are the 101st Airborne Screaming Eagles who jumped into Normandy - my own father among them - and we are the body of a lone Army Ranger that your followers dragged naked through the streets of Somalia.

    We are the 1st Cavalry who perished at Little Big Horn. We are Apache warriors who refused to run, and so stood awaiting death while chanting:
    "Your bullets stand no chance against our prayers!"

    To understand us read Thoreau and Emerson and Martin Luther King. Courage is a national cornerstone, but best demonstrated by us as individuals. We are Teddy Roosevelt charging up San Juan Hill on horseback and exploring rainforest rivers by canoe. We are Lou Gherig saying a fearless farewell.
    We are Rosa Parks, with tired feet, refusing to move to the back of the bus.

    We are John Wayne, standing tall, fighting cancer, and we are a great American Muslim named Ali, devoted to his understanding of what is right and wrong.

    Tough? Send a boxing team to the Olympics. Better yet, send them to Manhattan. We have some heroic fire fighters there who'd purely love to meet them.

    No. You cannot possibly know who we are, what we are, or you would not have delivered your cowardly message.

    The difficult question for us as Americans, though, is not will we triumph, but how? Our problem is this: In any conflict, the boundaries of acceptable behavior are defined by the party which cares least about morality. You have defined the boundaries, and there are none. The lives of the innocent, of women, children and good men, are meaningless. You hide weapon factories beneath day care centers. You hide collectively behind the caskets of innocents. You have no morality, no character, nor conscience, while we are blessed - and burdened - by all three.

    No matter. We will find a way. Americans always have. As Americans, we always will. Your invitation to us was written in the blood of our own heroes, so we have no choice but to accept. Your Day of Reckoning is near.
    A century from now, history will still hear the weeping of your widows. The world will agree that those of us who died that terrible Tuesday did not die in vain.

    Your cowardice cannot stand in the face of our resolve. Your Evil has no chance against our prayers.

  • | All Day | NATL - National Holidays
    - The impetus for a National Grandparents Day originated with Marian McQuade, a housewife in Fayette County, West Virginia. Her primary motivation was to champion the cause of lonely elderly in nursing homes. She also hoped to persuade grandchildren to tap the wisdom and heritage their grandparents could provide. President Jimmy Carter, in 1978, proclaimed that National Grandparents Day would be celebrated every year on the first Sunday after Labor Day.

  • | All Day | NATL - National Holidays
    - Rosh Hashanah is the Jewish New Year. The Biblical name for this holiday is Yom Teruah or the Feast of Trumpets. It is the first of the High Holy Days or Yamim Nora'im ("Days of Awe") which usually occur in the early autumn of the Northern Hemisphere. Rosh Hashanah is a two-day celebration, which begins on the first day of Tishrei. Tishrei is the first month of the Jewish civil year, but the seventh month of the ecclesiastical year.

    The day is said to be the anniversary of the creation of Adam and Eve, the first man and woman, and their first actions toward the realization of humanity's role in God's world. Rosh Hashanah customs include sounding the shofar (a hollowed-out ram's horn) and eating symbolic foods such as apples dipped in honey to evoke a "sweet new year".

    This year, Rosh Hashanah begins at sunset on September 13th and ends on the evening of September 15th. During Rosh Hashanah services, and at the end of Yom Kippur, the shofar is blown like a trumpet. Hearing the shofar's call is a reminder for us to look inward and repent for the sins of the past year.
