Saturday is the 20-year anniversary of 9/11.
On September 11, 2001, scumbag Al-Qaeda terrorists launched attacks on the Twin Towers, the Pentagon and intended to fly another plane into a D.C. target before the heroic passengers brought it down in a Pennsylvania field.
In the process of the horrific attacks, thousands of Americans were killed and many more were injured. It was arguably the darkest day in our nation’s proud and beautiful history.
The terrorists landed a brutal right hook right on the face of the USA.
What the terrorists didn’t plan for and could never have accounted for was our incredible resolve. We didn’t wait weeks to jump into action.
As soon as the first plane struck one of the Twin Towers, people jumped into action to help those around them. The greatest example of this is Welles Crowther, who was was an equity broker in the south tower.
When people needed help, he did what he could to save as many as he could. In the 20 years that have followed, he’s forever been known as “The Man in the Red Bandana” after wearing one while rescuing people.
Crowther didn’t survive the day, but countless people lived
