Normal Follow My Bitch Ass
911remembrance A little girl walks alongside the wall of names dedicated to the innocent passengers and crew lost onboard United Airlines Flight 93. The flight was the only hijacked aircraft on September 11th 2001 that did not reach it's intended target. The heroic acts of the passengers and crew onboard saved the lives of many. Those onboard Flight 93 learned of the events unfolding in Washington DC and New York while saying their goodbyes to loved ones on the aircraft airphones and voted amongst themselves to revolt against the attackers. Altogether, the passengers and crew made 35 airphone calls from the flight, one of which was a final goodbye sent by pregnant passenger Lauren Grandcolas to her husband. The passenger revolt on Flight 93 began at 09:57AM. They used a cabin service trolley, boiling water, cutlery and plates to overpower the hijackers inside the passenger cabin before using the food cart as a battering ram against the cockpit door. The two hijackers inside the cockpit began veering the plane at steep angles, violently throwing around those inside the cabin. The cockpit voice recorder captured the sounds of crashing, screaming, and the shattering of glass and plates. The hijackers stabilised the plane at 10:00AM. Five seconds later, one attacker asked, "Is that it? Shall we finish it off?" Another hijacker responded, "No. Not yet. When they all come, we finish it off." They once again pitched the airplane up and down. A passenger in the background cried, "In the cockpit. If we don't, we'll die" and a mad scramble occurred moments later as the cart breached the cockpit door and passengers rushed in. The hijackers forced the airplane to plummet into a nosedive with the yoke turned hard to the right before rolling upside down. Amidst the sounds of the passenger counterattack, the aircraft picked up speed, with whooshing and shrieking picked up on the cockpit recorder, before the plane finally plowed into a field in Stonycreek, Pennsylvania.

  •   nycmanhattanguide @911remembrance I recently heard all of this in the 911 Memorial Museum & I can't imagine the terror those passengers went through. So horribly sad & makes me angry at the same time to think about all the innocent people who died that day due to evil terrorist. 7h
  •   911remembrance @nycmanhattanguide One can't even begin to imagine what it must have felt like to be that plane - the fear they must have felt as it hurdled towards the ground is simply indescribable. The passengers and crew onboard Flight 93 saved the lives of many, many people and they are true examples of pure heroism and bravery. 5h

jacadventures And one for my homies

Cheers to my heroes and the bartenders who served them. This is the place my father would come with other firefighters after they would dig for bodies through the debris at ground zero. This place is very special to a lot of people because it gave them a place where they would be with other people who understood what thy were going through. The stories give me chills and I'm so grateful for my father to be alive and for him to share this place with me. Sad to see it being ripped down for apartments. 📸🎞: #35mm #film #disposablecamera #indisposableconcept #shootfilm #filmphotography #filmisnotdead #NYC #newyork #raccoonlodge #tribeca #september11th #911 #firefighters #fdny #firstresponders

911remembrance Juliana McCourt was one of the youngest victims of the September 11th attacks - she was just four years old when she boarded United Airlines Flight 175 with her mother Ruth. Accompanying them was Ruth's friend of ten years, Paige Farley Hackel. The trio planned to meet up at Boston's Logan International Airport and travel on to the 'Happiest Place on Earth', Disneyland. Paige was unable to reserve a seat alongside Juliana and Ruth and was instead booked onboard American Airlines Flight 11. None of them would reach their intended destination. Soon after takeoff, both planes, with Juliana, Ruth, and Paige aboard, were hijacked and flown towards Lower Manhattan. Paige’s plane was first to strike, hitting the North Tower of the World Trade Center. The plane flying Juliana and Ruth would follow, the terrorists flying it directly into the South Tower. In a heartbreaking twist, Ruth’s brother Ronald Clifford, attending a business meeting that day, was standing near the World Trade Center, looking on in horror at the smoke pouring from the North Tower. He watched helplessly as the second plane, he would later learn, carrying his sister and niece crashed into the second tower. Ruth was a native of County Cork, Ireland and emigrated to America at the age of 17 in 1973 with her family. She married David McCourt in 1994 and gave birth to her first and only daughter Juliana in 1997. Ruth’s family comforts themselves with their belief that when the plane crashed, Ruth was probably calm, holding her daughter tightly and softly singing in her ear.

  •   timsgma Still makes me cry as if it was today. Our cousin, Roy Chelsen, was a first responder with Engine 28 Ladder 11. He died 1/9/11 due to multiple myeloma he contracted from that day and the clean up. We will never forget. 2d
  •   andrewcarlstedt @911remembrance THAT had to suck 2d
  •   911remembrance @timsgma I am so deeply sorry for your loss. Your cousin gave the ultimate sacrifice and his passing is an example of the long term effects of the attacks. 2d

theunfoundsolace This is essentially what went down when #september11th happened. A #falseflag #terror operation is a self-inflicted wound to advance a political agenda which always involves making #money. Do you see that your government is capable of such a thing yet? It's been going on for quite some time. #warisaracket #empireandconquest #terrorism #terrorists #operationnorthwoods #JohnFKennedy #JFK #wakeup #truth #911wasaninsidejob #911truth 3d

coreykwoka My parents are in town to see my show, and of course I wanted to take them by the North and South Pools. Never forget the losses our country faced on September 11, 2001. Always remember our will to rebuild our lives, our trust and our homeland. #911 #911memorial #nyc #newyork #newyorkcity #art_spotlight #art_collective #september11 #september11th #america #wearenotafraid #nofear #neverforget #love #beauty #serenity #peace #joy #community #rebuild #usa #americanflag #memorial #downtownnyc #twintowers #oneworld #oneworldtower #solidarity #commonground #groundzero 4d
