10 Years On.....

Sunday 11th September, 2011

Today is the 10th anniversary of that atrocious terrorist attack on the Twin Towers in New York, The Pentagon in Washington and an airplane that crashed in Pennsylvania.

Times of impact: 8:46 a.m. and 9:02 a.m.
Time the burning towers stood: 56 minutes and 102 minutes.
Time they took to fall: 12 seconds.
2819 dead from 115 different nations.
343 Fireman/paramedics, 23 NYPD, 37 Port Authority officers and 1 Search and Rescue Dog named Sirius 

May we never ever forget that terrible day.  It was a day that has changed the World.  Maybe not for the better as there is still terrorist attacks in various parts of the world today.

Due to these attacks army personnel from around the world were sent to Iraq to fight and also to Afghanistan.  Many of these soldiers have now lost their lives fighting for the freedom for their respective countries.

Australia, too, has had their share of lives lost.  Let's hope that history will show, that these lives have not been lost in vain.
