At least nine people are dead and scores more injured after a pilot participating in the Reno Air Race in Reno, Nevada lost control of his vintage plane and crashed into a VIP section full of spectators on Friday afternoon.
This little PSA starts out earnestly enough, warning of the dangers of driving too fast and how slowing down even a little can increase the time needed to stop a car — and possibly avoid hitting a pedestrian.
During Sunday’s ceremony marking the 10th anniversary of the terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center, Paul Simon gave a haunting acoustical performance of ‘The Sound of Silence’ while some onlookers wept.
It took a global epidemic to do it, but ‘The Help’ has finally been knocked out of the number one spot at the box office after three weeks at the top of the list.
The Steven Soderbergh-directed ‘Contagion,’ about a deadly and fast-spreading disease and the panic it causes, earned $23.1 million at theaters in its first week of release, relegating ‘The Help’ to a runner-up status. The mixed-martial arts action flick, ‘Warrior,’ came in third during its debut week, with ‘The Debt’ and ‘Columbiana’ rounding out the top five.
Working with the National September 11 Memorial and Museum, the oral history project StoryCorps is on a mission to record at least one story honoring each of the victims of the attacks on the World Trade Center that occurred on February 26, 1993 and on September 11, 2001.
Peg Ogonowski’s late husband, John, was the captain of American Flight 11 — better known as the first plane to hit the World Trade Center on September 11th, 2001.
“It was that moment of before and after,” said Peg, a former flight attendant. “There was my whole life before and then everything changed. It was a real line in my life that there will always be before 9/11 and after 9/11.”
After the September 11, 2001 attacks on the World Trade Center, one of the largest American flags damaged during the attacks continued to fly above the resulting wreckage during the clean-up efforts.
Seven years later, that flag, dubbed the National 9/11 Flag, was sewn back together by tornado survivors in Greensburg, Kansas, and has also been stitched by World War II veterans, survivors of the Ft. Hood, Texas rampage, and Martin Luther King Jr.’s family.
