The 9th Anniversary of September 11 Attacks

Today is the 9th Anniversary of September 11, 2001 attacks that have forever put a mark on the Psyche on America. I vividly remember that I was working in Midtown Manhattan that the first plane attacked. We were listening on the radio and we heard after a while that another plane attacked the second tower. At first we thought that the first plane had accidentally hit the first tower, but when it hit the second one, it was definitely deemed a terror attack and then another one hit the Pentagon and then in Pennsylvania and we were ordered to evacuate our building.
It was so much chaos that we were hearing several planes are in the air to attack us. It was the most devastating attack on the U.S. soil. I saying this because the Pearl Harbor attack in 1941 was not on U.S. soil since Hawaii became our 50th State in 1959.
We have been ever fighting since 2001 to make us safe from the Terrorists. Here I want to emphasize (although many will disagree) that the Terrorists have no religion. They are heartless and to achieve their agenda will kill anybody who stands in their way whether innocent or not. Although the terrorists that struck the U.S. used the name of Islam but anybody can use it to further their cause. The Islamic world should start seeing what the terrorists stand for and fight them with whatever force they can muster since if they do not then other forces will do it for them then they will not have anybody but to blame themselves.
