Shattered Dreams – Singer Nora Fogarty.

Popular local ballad singer Nora Fogarty performs hereunder the song “Shattered Dreams”.

(Lyrics written by Co. Kilkenny poet Kathleen Blanchfield).

Our readers will sadly remember what is commonly referred to as the ‘9/11 attacks’ (September 11th 2001), where four coordinated suicide terrorist attacks were carried out by the militant Islamic extremist network al-Qaeda, against the United States of America.

On the morning of Tuesday, September 11th, 2001, nineteen terrorists hijacked four commercial airliners, each scheduled to travel from northeastern U.S. to California.

The hijackers crashed the first two planes into the twin towers of the World Trade Centre in New York City, and the third plane into the Pentagon (headquarters of the American military), latter situated at Arlington, Virginia.

The fourth plane which was intended to hit a federal government building in Washington, D.C., crashed into a field, following a revolt by passengers on board the flight.

Sadly, these acts of terrorism killed some 3,000 people, before instigating a global war on terror.
