Today is nineteenth anniversary of the September 11th terrorists’ attacks on the US. The plane hijackings that struck the World Trade Center, the Pentagon, and a Pennsylvania field killed 2,977 people and left many others with lifetime health problems. The acts of bravery of countless people will never be forgotten. Life post-911 changed, from new airline security measures to the “War on Terror.”
The events of September 11th showed the resilience of Americans to overcome difficult times. COVID-19 provides yet another opportunity for resiliency.
