Wayne Local School District would like to recognize these next few days as presidentially proclaimed, National Days of Prayer and Remembrance.  September 8-10 mark the terrorist attack on the World Trade Center on September 11, 2001.  

As taken from the National Calendar: 

By Presidential Proclamation, the three days September 8-10 are designated as National Days of Prayer and Remembrance marking the terrorist attack on the World Trade Center on September 11, 2001.

On September 11, 2001, 19 militants associated with the Islamic extremist group al-Qaida hijacked four airplanes and carried out suicide attacks against targets in the United States. Two of the planes were flown into the twin towers of the World Trade Center in New York City. The collision caused a massive explosion showering burning debris over surrounding buildings and onto the streets below. In minutes, it became clear that America was under attack.

A third plane hit the Pentagon, and the fourth plane crashed in a field in Pennsylvania.

A total of 2,996 people were killed in the 9/11 attacks, including the 19 terrorist hijackers aboard the four airplanes. People from 78 countries died.
