A Decade After 9/11

The 2001 September 11 attack was one of the worst terror attacks in the modern day history of the United States. According to Wikipedia, the attack resulted to 2,996 deaths, including the 19 hijackers and 2,977 victims. Among those who were killed were our eighteen kababayans (countrymen), and two others who were on board the two planes that crashed into the building.

Today marks the 10th year anniversary of 9/11. Hundreds of people visit the Memorial Museum to get a sneak peak of the debris of the collapsed tower, photos of victims, condolence notes, and a lot more.

Maximo Laminoza of San Diego, California was qouted saying, "I feel bad and devastated". Marilyn Agustin on the other hand said, “I think this is the place where those who lost their son, or their brother, or their sister can console themselves, which is good."

You may no longer be with your families anymore but your memories will live on!
