In 2001 America was greatly affected the day four
airplanes caused the death of over three thousand Americans during acts of
terrorism. In memory of that day, Patriot day was proclaimed to be
national holiday for September 11th of each year. Since that day, we
have come together and help rebuild that which was destroyed including the
rebuilding of lower Manhattan, which commenced the construction of its new
tower on July 4th of 2004.
