Memory’s Requiem: 12 years after 9/11

Smoke and flames billow as United Airlines Flight 175 crashes into the World Trade Center’s South Tower, Sept. 11, 2001 – killing everyone aboard and hundreds more inside the building. In New York, the crashes of two airlines hijacked by al-Qaida terrorists and the subsequent collapse of the towers killed roughly 2,800 people. (Getty Images photo by Spencer Platt/Released)
