a colloquialism for September 11th 2001, the day when the world trade center was attacked by foreign terrorists
9/11 was a tragic day for the country.
by The Return of Light Joker February 28, 2008
A tragic event that occured in 2001.

Terrorists boarded commercial jets, hijacked them, and flew them into the Twin Towers and the Pentagon, and the fourth hijacked plane was crashed in a field in Shanksville, Pennsylvania.
The main suspect of the attacks was Osama bin Laden...who is head of Al Qaeda, the Taliban was also involved.

Nowadays this tragety is used for politicians to try and get higher ranks, promising they'll do something about it, and they never do.

9/11 is also a reason why Arabs get checked at airports a lot more than the rest of us. Also, it's the sole reason why we now have to take off our shoes before boarding a plane.
9/11 was a day that terrorists hijacked commercial airliners and flew them into buildings in a fit of rage while screaming crap like 'Allah'.

A day where we saw the absolute worst of humanity. As well as a day where we saw the greatest aspects of humanity. A day where for far too short of a time in American history we casted aside all of our differences, our prejudices, as well as our hatred of each other to help those we did not know in times of dire desperation and need. It was a day where the invisible boundaries, whose foundation rests on fear and ignorance, that separate us all came crashing down with those towers. For one moment in time we saw all of us as true equals, all united as Americans. We knew that if we were to survive and seek justice for this horrendous act, committed by barbarians who do not even belong in the specie of humans, we knew we all had to stand united.
The biggest tragedy of 9/11 was that our unity was not to last. Out of our fears and paranoias we latched on to our ideologies, as well as our leaders who made promises as empty as the hollow pits where the Twin Towers once stood.

September 11, 2001. The day a group of 19 terrorists crashed two planes into The World Trade Center, and 1 into the Pentagon and another into a field. It resulted in 2,998 deaths, and more than 6000 injuries. It's one of the bad things that Bush has let happen to us. He sat through the whole thing and didn't do a thing. It was a mindless act by Al-Qaeda, led by Osama bin Laden.
Two planes crashed into the World Trade Center causing a lot of deaths on 9/11.

The day when Al-Queda terrorist hijacked CIVILIAN planes and crashed them into the World Trade Center and the Pentagon, and one more being taken back over by the passengers. altogerther, over 3,000 people died. This was NOT a government hoax. It was an cowardly attack aganist innocent people, which, no matter what you say, locked us uin a war aginst a great evil, Al-Queda and its other little groups. This, is fact, and incase you didn't notice, this is also a crime aginst humanity.
Protester- Bush is behind 9/11!!
Random Guy- Do you have proof?
Protester- Well, yeah, he framed it beacuse he is a Nazi!
Random Guy- Sorry, but I don't have time for this.
