Remembering September 11 - A Memorial Video
I put this video together to show my students what happened on 9/11/2001. History is not meant to be forgotten. *Instrumental music set to a slideshow of 9/11 photos.
REMEMBERING SEPTEMBER 11 <div></div> It was the day the world was shaken. America brought to its knees. A day forever engraved on our hearts. This video takes you on a tear- jerking journey of the events of that day as they unfolded. <div></div> The World Trade Center was a towering landmark on the New York Skyline. It?s Twin Towers a breathtaking view, especially for tourists. However, on that beautiful Tuesday morning, September 11, 2001 at 8:46 AM, terror from above would deem it vanished. Gone forever. At 9:03 AM, the second tower was hit. <div></div> President Bush tried to hide the shock as he was being told of what had just happened in front of children. <div></div> Flight 77 hit the Pentagon at 9:37, damaging one of the wings. At 10:03 AM hijackers under attack by passengers run flight 93 into the ground in ShanksVille. The south Tower collapsed at 10:03AM and the North one at 10:28 AM. <div></div> Rubble was everywhere. Confusion and exhaustion registered on people?s faces. Grown men in tears. Humanity broken. And then a resolve. As the police and firefighters worked through the rubble to save those stuck underneath and recover the dead. Americans rose in arms extend a helping hand to those affected. Hugs and words of comfort offered. The American Spirit rising ever higher. <div></div> Where the Twin Towers stood, now lies Ground Zero with the names of those lost on that fateful day- nearly 3000 deaths. September 11, 2001- we witnessed the destruction of the Twin Towers, the damaging of the Pentagon and death. Buildings can be destroyed and lives may be lost, yet the American Spirit Lives on! <div></div>
