September 11, 2001, a cowardly and faceless enemy attacked the United States

scenes of planes piercing the twin towers, buildings crumbling to the ground,

this terrible tragedy, we struggle to comprehend the impact of these deplorable
acts on millions of people worldwide. Like every civilized person on this

God Bless America
