2001: US rocked by day of terror

“The United States is in a state of shock after a day of attacks which have left thousands dead and New York’s World Trade Center destroyed. The Pentagon was also severely damaged by one of the three civilian airliners which hijackers turned into flying bombs. A fourth plane crashed in a field near Pittsburgh.

A state of emergency has been declared in Washington D.C. and the US has closed its airspace and its borders with Mexico and Canada.

American forces are on one of their highest states of alert and the Pentagon has deployed a naval battle group off the country’s east coast to bolster air defences.”

Today I will remember the thousands of poor innocents who lost their lives, and hope that one day the World will be a better place…
