5) September 11, 2001
On this day in 2001, America faced terrorist attacks in New York City, Washington D.C., and western Pennsylvania. Terrorists had hijacked planes and flew them into the World Trade Center and Pentagon building. The passengers on the flight hijacked out of Newark, NJ vowed to not go down without a fight and attacked the cockpit. The plane crashed in western Pennsylvania, keeping it from hitting its intended target, which may have been the White House. Thousands of people were killed in the attacks, including 343 New York City firefighters, 23 NYC police officers and 37 Port Authority police officers. A Woburn native, Robert Edward Pattison was working for WCBS in New York City at the World Trade Center, when he was killed in the attacks.
