91101 And Another Middle Eastern War
Today, September 11, 2013, we mark the 12th anniversary of that horrible day on September 11, 2001 when nearly three thousand Americans lost their lives when cowards crashed commercial airliners into the World Trade Center Towers and the Pentagon and a fourth plane was crashed in the rolling hills of Pennsylvania to avoid another Washington, D.C. tragedy.

You can read the Wikipedia account of the events of that day a dozen years ago HERE.
ABOUT THE VICTIMS
And, you can read the CNN Memorial site for the victims of that day HERE. I've had it on my homepage for many years, so you can click on it any time you wish in the future.

And, the raw numbers from and as a result of that day will stagger you, HERE.
