Terrorism is something that has been feared in our history, but terrorism made its largest impact on Sept. 11, 2001. This year marks the 12th anniversary of 9/11. America suffered a loss of nearly 3,000 lives in the terrorist attack that sabotaged New York, Pennsylvania and Virginia.

After the first attack was announced in the morning, many people were nervously awaiting any sort of news that would clarify what was happening. A question on America’s mind was, ‘who could be responsible for this?’

This attack was horrifying and it is an event that should forever be remembered. Many Americans took time today to remember and honor the victims of the unfortunate events of 9/11. People in New York held a moment of silence at 8:46 a.m., the moment the first planes hit the World Trade Center.

Students at Davis High also stop to remember the events of 9/11.

“I think 9/11 was such a tragic event and I sympathize with the victims and their families. 9/11 allowed the people of America to become more aware of what goes on in terrorism,” junior Maria Sandhu said.

Students should take a moment of silence in respect of the victims and in remembrance of this unforgettable day.
