Heckery Dekkery Dot Remembers 9/11.

The World Trade Center Towers were New York City’s tallest skyscrapers, but they were destroyed on September 11, 2001, when two airplanes flew into them.  Tragically, too many people lost loved ones, and too many people were injured.  This was a sad day for the citizens of New York City, as well as for everyone in the United States of America, and the tragedy touched people from countries all over the world. new_york_new_york

Also on September 11, 2001, a part of the Pentagon, headquarters of the U. S. Department of Defense, was badly damaged when an airplane flew into it . . . . And, an airplane crashed into a field south of Pittsburgh in Shanksville, Pennsylvania, which also resulted in the loss of lives.  This was a sad day for the United States of America and for countries all over the world! washington_d_c.
