memorial pentagon Image by ello mate you arlight? 👀
soon after the attack on 9/11 at the World Trade Center there was an attack of the Pentagon by other hijackers.
tigger warning** if you are sensitive to this please don’t read or take caution
the pentagon is the headquarters building of the United States Department of Defense. so it was also a big deal that this place got attacked as well.
the flight number was American Arlines Flight 77, these people had no idea of what was going to happen. 53 passengers and 6 flight crew died as a result of this crash. The south side of the pentagon was hit so not the entire building got effected.
25 people are buried at the memorial at the pentagon and 184 are commemorated. there are also five people who are honored because their remains were never found.
this memorial is very unique. the arches you see if the picture represent the airplane wings, the ones pointing towards the building are the people who died in the plane crash, and the ones facing outwards of the building are the ones in the building that got killed.
there was a total of 3 hijacked planes on 9/11, the next one I’ll be getting to soon. all are equally sad and scary. but in the next post I’ll explain that it is still safe to go in high rise buildings and planes.
It is ok if any of this saddens you or makes you scared, pls feel free to comment questions, your viewpoint, or if I forgot anything
