The attacks on September 11 2001 were a series of four coordinated terrorist attacks by the militant Islamist terrorist group al-Qaeda against the United States of America.

Two planes crashed into the Twin Towers in Manhattan, while a third hit the Pentagon, outside Washington DC. The fourth had an unknown target in the nation's capital but passengers attempted to regain control of the aircraft and it crashed in a field in Pennsylvania.

It remains the deadliest terrorist attack in human history, with 2977 innocent people dying including 340 firefighters and 72 police officers, and over 25,000 injuries.

"Twenty years later...female first responders and survivors share their stories," Robin captioned the post.

"I had the honor of speaking with Genelle Guzman-McMillan, the last person pulled out alive from the World Trade Center rubble after 27 hours. She and the numerous women in this documentary will inspire you with their resiliency and courage."
