What Happened On September 11, 2001?

 After we left church this morning I asked my mother what happened on September 11, 2001.  I already know that there was a terrorist attack and planes crashed into buildings and a field in Pennsylvania but I wanted to know why.  Why would people want to hurt other people who they didn't know and people who had never harmed them?  She said  that it was too much to talk about while we were leaving church and we would talk about it more when we got home. 

I looked on the internet and found some explanations I thought were really helpful. this is one.

"The September 11th Attack on America
"On September 11, 2001, there was an attack on America.
There are some men that decided that they didn’t like what America stands for: freedom, liberty, and the rights of men and women of all races, backgrounds, and beliefs. So on the morning of September 11, 2001, they hijacked four planes and attacked America in a terrible way.
Two of the airplanes were crashed into the World Trade Center in New York City. The third plane was crashed into the Pentagon in Washington, D.C. The last plane was going to crash into another building in Washington, D.C., but the passengers stopped the hijackers, and the plane crashed into a field instead.
Thousands of people lost their lives through these attacks. Hundreds of people were on the planes. Thousands died in the buildings that were hit by those planes.
The men that arranged this terrible attack want Americans to feel afraid and disorganized. They want to make people who live in this country do what they say by threatening us. Basically they’re big bullies.
The people of the United States are a strong group of people. Keep faith in who you are and what our country stands for and we will become even stronger than before".
This is a video on Nick News that I found, it helps to explain to kids about that day. The video isn't scary so don't worry.  CLICK VIDEO HERE.

The hand belongs to God.
This Morning in my church we remembered the people that died and the rescuers.  It was Youth Sunday and I got the chance to draw a picture in front of the entire congregation while they listened to the song "Let There Be Peace On Earth".  Here is the picture I drew everyone liked it and clapped when I was finished and this is just the rough draft.  The one I drew in church is much bigger. It is all very sad what happened. One of my classmates said their cousin died in 9/11.

 I wish there was peace on earth right now.

Osama bin Laden was the whole ringleader of the plot. He was killed by the U.S. Navy SEALs, and The CIA.
