Nineteen years ago two Boeing 767 jetliners,
which were piloted by hijackers from the Middle East,
flew into the North and South Towers at the Trade Center,
killing well over two thousand workers, although many more escaped.
That same morning, another hijacked Boeing 757
flew into the Pentagon, taking over a hundred lives;
not long before a commercial plane, Flight 93,
crashed into a field in Pennsylvania just after 10 am.
Nine years ago Osama bin Laden, the founder of Al-Qaeda,
who masterminded the attacks, was found by US Navy SEALS,
in his compound. They executed him and threw the body out to sea:
One said, 'Those who live by the sword will perish by the sword'.
In 2014,Freedom Tower, which was built on Ground Zero, opened.
It is much taller than the Twin Towers, blue and white, and complex geometrically.
In August 2012, Barack Obama wrote in red on a steel panel:
'We remember. We rebuild. We come back stronger! '
