Today marks the 20th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks. These were "a series of four coordinated terrorist attacks [...] against the United States of America on the morning of Tuesday, September 11, 2001."

Of the 2,977 people who died, 2,605 were U.S. citizens and 372 non-U.S. citizens (excluding the 19 perpetrators). More than 90 countries lost citizens in the attacks, including the United Kingdom (67 deaths), the Dominican Republic (47 deaths), India (41 deaths), Greece (39 deaths), South Korea (28 deaths), Canada (24 deaths), Japan (24 deaths), Colombia (18 deaths), Jamaica (16 deaths), Philippines (16 deaths), Mexico (15 deaths), Trinidad and Tobago (14 deaths), Ecuador (13 deaths), Australia (11 deaths), Germany (11 deaths), Italy (10 deaths), Bangladesh (6 deaths), Ireland (6 deaths), Pakistan (6 deaths), and Poland (6 deaths).

It was a tragedy not only for America, but for the world.

    Crawlers? Similarly, the constant barrage of split screen guest "experts" spewing narratives. Make their "experts" look more impressive by looking like they are teleconferencing from some other state. The vast majority of the time they were actually in another room in the same studio. Only in the last couple of years, due to covid, have guests really been teleconferencing.

    Also, a whole generation will know nothing of what it was like to fly an airplane without having the TSA to grope or scan them. Or to enter a workplace without a guard at each entrance and security badge locks every step of the way.
