September 09, 2001 was a day of horror when four planes where hijacked. Two where flown into the Twin Towers. One into the north tower at 8:45 am and one into the south tower minutes later. The third plane hitting the Pentagon around 9:39 am. Four plane heading for The Capital Building or the White House crashed into a field in Somerset County, Pennsylvania after some passengers  tried to take back the plane.

Terrorists shattered the safety of the United States just like the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor, then the America people new the shock on U.S. soil. What happened on that day changed how the U.S. worked. New laws where passed like the Patriot Act, and The Department of Homeland Security was created to protect America from another terrorist attack.
