Who among us can forget the events of Sept. 11, 2001?

While the attack on Pearl Harbor on Dec. 7, 1941, remains what President Franklin D. Roosevelt called “a date which will live in infamy,” Americans also remember the horror of Sept. 11.

Our world stood still when 15 terrorists armed with box cutters hijacked three commercial jetliners full of civilians and flew them into the World Trade Center buildings in New York City, and the Pentagon in Arlington, Virginia.
