Mission Elementary 9/11 Rememberance

September 11, 2001. A horrible day in American history. This was an ordinary day in New York City. Four planes were attacked mid-flight and were hijacked by terrorists from the Middle East called "Al Qaeda." Two of them flew into the World Trade Center known as the Twin Towers. Another flew into the Pentagon in Arlington, Virginia. Lastly, the fourth crashed in Shanksville, Pennsylvania. All of which burst into flames and caused the Twin Towers to collapse. Experts believe this terrorist group intended to attack the White House or the U.S Capital. Passengers fought against the terrorist so that they would not fly into the White House. Nearly 3,000 people were killed on 9/11.
In remembrance of this day, our Mission community comes together to pray for the victims, their families, and that love and tolerance will bring our world to peace.
