The Effect of 9/11 on America’s Economy

On September 11, 2001 as ordinary people prepared for their work days, faceless cowards attacked New York City, where I lived most of my life. They crashed, hijacked commercial jetliners into the 2 towers that comprised the World Trade Center. This killed all on board, hundreds of emergency personnel and thousands of innocent fellow New Yorkers, fellow Americans who had done nothing to these evil cowards. 8000 elementary school children who attend schools in the shadow of the twin towers had to be evacuated. The people on those jetliners, the people inside the twin towers, the emergency personnel that raced to the scene, the people who love and work here and those 8000 children do not make Middle East policy but that didn’t concern the terrorists at all because they felt they had to make their point.

To the innocent victims whose lives were taken, to the heroes who gave their lives you will never be forgotten.

It is these good, dedicated, caring people that we call heroes. We met the worst of humanity with the best of humanity. We are united…
