Hello there everyone, this is one of the first blog posts, not about chocolate, today marks the day known as 9/11.
Today we acknowledge 9/11, a very unfortunate day in history for America, this was the day that the Twin Towers fell, killing 2,977 innocent people, who were taken too soon, 343 firefighters were killed that day, trying to save those trapped high up in the Towers.
The attacks resulted in the deaths of 2,996 people, including the 19 hijackers.The 2,977 victims included 246 on the four planes (from which there were no survivors), 2,606 in the World Trade Center and in the surrounding area, and 125 at the Pentagon. Nearly all of those who perished were civilians. 72 law enforcement officers, 343 firefighters, and 55 military personnel died in the attacks. More than 90 countries lost citizens in the September 11 attacks.
People up until today are STILL being affected by this tragedy, not by just pain stricken grief alone, but by smoke and dust inhalation.
We remember those people who lost their lives, and those who still live with the sad loss of dealing with the pain still in their hearts.
My personal thoughts are with those who are gone, and their families, and us at the Chocolate Wiki thank you all, for your service, whether you were a paramedic, firefighter, police officer, security guard or a pilot, I and Chocolate Wiki, thank you for being brave on that day.
