September 11, 2001 is a date that will ever live in the minds of those who watched with horror as terrorists purposefully crashed planes into the twin tower buildings in New York City. I can remember watching the television as the second plane crashed into the second building and moments later the first building that had been hit collapsed, killing thousands of people.
