20 years after 9/11 attack, the USA stands strong

I still remembering vividly on that horrifying morning of 9/11/2001 around 8:45, my mom called me from 30 minutes driving distance and said "turn on your TV, something is terribly wrong in New York". I was on internet checking my email messages and prepare for the day.

It was gut-wrenching pictures from TV that 19 terrorists from Mid-East hijacked 4 of U.S. airplanes, two planes flown into World Trade twin towers and one plane flown to the Pentagon and one fell into ground when the passengers fought with terrorists. The total casualty is about 3,000 people. We won't forget, we won't forgive for what those terrorists have done to us.

The USA is the greatest country, welcome and accept immigrants to this country. I am forever patriot and appreciate what the USA given me the peaceful safety. Ever since 9/11 attack, the airline companies required you to take shoes off, TSA (Transportation Security Administration) check your body and luggage with the metal detector, not allowing to bring any knife or water bottle. Not mention the pandemic disease since 2020, all passengers required to wear masks and two vaccine shots to board on the planes.

The USA is still the strongest country, protecting Americans and allies. The best educational universities, the best technology, and best military force. God bless America.

Honesty is the best policy.

When the 9/11/2001 terror attack, both my children were in elementary school even they skipped a grade. They came home from school and said their school want parents to donate cash for the tragedy. I asked why cash? Can we donate by check? My daughter said there was not an organization established for donation yet. So, I gave my daughter and son each $50 USD cash. Red Cross said there was no need to donate blood, as not many people survived when two buildings crashed. Up to this date, I still don't know where my $100 donated to the families of the people who died or not. However, I did report that $100 donation to IRS income tax in 2001.

This terror attack really shocked U.S. government. Why FBI or CIA didn't get the information beforehand? This terror attack is like a gapping hole for each one of American. Terrorists easily board on 4 airplanes, trained as pilots in USA, used our airplanes as weapons to bomb our citizens. How could CIA don't have a clue? I cried every time when I saw this 9/11 attack.

Honesty is the best policy.
