9/11

So, today is the 11th of September.

11/9.

Or, as they say in the land of Americana,

9/11.

 

On this day, about 12 years ago, two planes hit the World Trade Centre in New York, also known as the 

Twin Towers.

 

2996 people died in total. 

 

The two planes that hit the twin towers were not the only ones hijacked.

 

Two more were taken, one of which was flown into the Pentagon building, 

 

The other was on the way to the White House when its passengers reclaimed it and crashed it into a field, many of them dying in the process.

 

These attacks were masterminded by Al Qaeda an extremist Muslim terrorist organization.

 

As a consequence of this attack, Afghanistan was invaded.

As of today, many soldiers remain in Afghanistan.

 

This is a dramatised reading of a poem commissioned to mark the 5 year anniversary of the attack.

 

I guess the point I’m making is …..

 

We won’t forget them.
