20 Pax Posted in the gloom to take a moment and reflect on the significance of the day and honor those that sacrificed (and continue to sacrifice to this day). In all, 2996 people lost their lives that day, and more would follow. We took just a small bit of time out of our morning to honor this.

I would like to take a moment and reflect on the significance of the day and honor those that sacrificed (and continue to sacrifice to this day).
“343” honoring the 343 firefighters who died on 9/11.
During the September 11 attacks of 2001, 2,996 people were killed (including the 19 hijackers) and more than 6,000 others injured. These immediate deaths included 265 on the four planes (including the terrorists), 2,606 in the World Trade Center and in the surrounding area, and 125 at the Pentagon.
Most of those who perished were civilians except for 343 firefighters and 71 law enforcement officers who died in the World Trade Center and on the ground in New York City, and another law enforcement officer who died when United Airlines Flight 93 crashed into a field near Shanksville, Pennsylvania, 55 military personnel who died at the Pentagon in Arlington County, Virginia, and the 19 terrorists who died on board the four aircraft. Overall, 2,605 U.S. citizens, including 2,135 civilians, died in the attacks, while an additional 372 non-U.S. citizens (excluding the 19 perpetrators) also perished, which represented about 12% of the total. More than 90 countries lost citizens in the attacks, including the United Kingdom (67 deaths), the Dominican Republic (47 deaths), and India (41 deaths).
At the time of the attacks, media reports suggested that tens of thousands might have been killed, as on any given day upwards of 100,000 people could be inside the towers.
Only 14 people escaped from the impact zone of the South Tower (floors 77 to 85) after it was struck by United Airlines Flight 175, and only four people from the floors above it.
No one survived in or above the impact area in the North Tower.
After the towers collapsed, only 23 individuals in or below the towers escaped from the debris, including 15 rescue workers.
As of August 2013, medical authorities concluded that 1,140 people who worked, lived, or studied in Lower Manhattan at the time of the attack have been diagnosed with cancer as a result of “exposure to toxins at Ground Zero”. It has been reported that over 1,400 9/11 rescue workers who responded to the scene in the days and months after the attacks have since died. At least 11 pregnancies were lost as a result of 9/11.

COT: Pax is well. Great to have FNG Nate get crowned with no better name then “Florence”. Glad to have Bocephus join us as well. Prayers to all those in its way. We pray for everyones safety and well being. We pray for our first responders, especially those families of them and civilians lost in 9/11 and each and every day they are in harms way. Please keep Little Debbie’s 2.0 in your prayers. Peter Pans college friend has Parkinson’s and is going through an extremely rough patch in marriage. Please pray for him. Congrats to Antoine, his Screen Write has been picked up, big step and hope to find its way into a directors hands soon. Hell of a push…stay safe…Have a great week!
