There are some men that decided that they didn’t like what America stands for: freedom, liberty, and the rights of men and women of all races, backgrounds, and beliefs. So on that morning, they hijacked four planes and attacked America in a terrible way.

 World Trade Center

Two of the airplanes were crashed into the World Trade Center in New York City. The third plane was crashed into the Pentagon in Washington, D.C. The last plane was going to crash into another building in Washington, D.C., but the passengers stopped the hijackers, and the plane crashed into a field instead.

Thousands of people lost their lives through these attacks. Hundreds of people were on the planes. Thousands died in the buildings that were hit by those planes.

The men that arranged this terrible attack want Americans to feel afraid and disorganized. They want to make Americans do what they say by threatening us. Basically they’re big bullies.

 Family Waving Flags
That’s why it’s important for Americans to join together and help each other. There are many ways to do this.
  • You can read about What’s Going On and talk about it with your family and friends.
  • You can show that you are proud to be an American by wearing red, white, and blue or hanging a flag in your window.
  • You can help raise money to help the families of the people that died in the attacks, or you can write letters to the people that are helping put New York City and Washington, D.C. back together again.

The people of the United States are a strong group of people. Keep faith in who you are and what our country stands for and we will become even stronger than before.

The morning of September 11, 2001 will live on in the hearts and minds of every American forever. Unfortunately, to some of our fellow New York, New York/New Jersey Port Authority law enforcement officers, other law enforcement personnel and their families, that date will hold an even deeper meaning, having experienced personal losses through this tragedy. In response to the many inquiries offering assistance, the NYS FOP has initiated this relief fund.
