A terrorist group (I will not mention its name here) hijacked four planes on the 11 September 2001 (hence the name 9/11) Two of which crashed into the World Trade Centre's Twin Towers, the third one smashed into the US Pentagon, and the fourth one was planned to crash into the White House, or Capitol Hill, but fortunately failed. Unfortunately however, about 3,000 people were killed in these barbaric attacks. And that is why the 11th of September is known has Patriot's Day, to remember the ones affected in these terror attacks.
From the United Kingdom, and the rest of the world, we say,
