On This Day



On This Day… The Day We’ll Never Forget

Written by: George Chittenden : 03 Jun 2019

It was on this day, 11th Sept, back in 2001 when Al Qaeda hijacked multiple planes, crashing two into the World Trade Center, one into the Pentagon and one into a field in Pennsylvania. I’m sure, like us here at ‘The History Project’ you remember that day like it was yesterday. Personally, I remember staring at the TV for most of that day whilst the shocking events unfolded.

Today we remember the 2977 people that lost their lives on that tragic day and pay our respects to the men and women that risks their lives to save others. One of the unknown heroes that day was a guide dog named Roselle who led her blind owner, Michael Hingson, down 78 stories of the North Tower and to the home of a friend.

It’s surprising to think that 9/11 was the single largest loss of life from a foreign attack on American soil in history, including Pearl Harbour. The Japanese attack on America’s navy base in Hawaii on the morning of December 7th, 1941 resulted in the loss of 2,335 lives. It’s hard to imagine that the disaster at the World Trade Center could have been any worse, but truth be told if the attack had occurred later that morning the occupants in each tower would have swelled to nearly 20,000 and as many as 14,000 people could have been killed.

We promote history by...

offering free articles and videos, providing free history experiences for children in schools and on weekends. Next year we will be visiting hospitals and providing unforgettable experiences to children who really need it and give them a chance to forget their condition, their treatment and their reality. Please join others who support our free projects by giving a small donation. We can only continue our great work with your help.
