It has been a decade since the unprecedented terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001. Despite the time that has passed, our memories of that day remain fresh and raw. More than 3,000 lives were lost in the attacks at New York City and the Pentagon as terrorist hijackers flew two planes into the World Trade Center and one into the Pentagon.
