‘Live Your Life The Best You Can’ Never Forget – 9/11/2001 As It Happened

Let’s stop for a moment today and reflect on those lost.

Sincerely.

  • 23 Police Officers New York Police Department
  • 37 Port Authority Police
  • 343 New York Firefighters
  • 8 Emergency Medical Technicians
  • 1 New York Fire Patrol Patrolman
  • 2,565 People in the World Trade Center Towers, the Pentagon, and Four Airplanes.

2,977 People Killed That Day, 19-years ago. We Remember.

“Hey Jules, it’s Brian, I’m on a plane and it’s hijacked and it doesn’t look good. I just wanted to let you know that I love you and I hope to see you again. If I don’t, please have fun in life and live your life the best you can. Know that I love you and no matter what, I’ll see you again.” –Brian Sweeney, a passenger on Flight 175 that crashed into the World Trade Center, to his wife, Julie
“Numerous civilians in all stairwells, numerous burn victims are coming down. We’re trying to send them down first … We’re still heading up.” –New York City Fire Department Captain Patrick Brown.
“Are you guys ready? Let’s roll!” That’s how Todd Beamer lived. And that’s how he died, helping to lead a takeover by passengers on United Airlines Flight 93.
