The actions of 19 Islamic extremists on 9/11 left an indelible mark on America. Today, millions pause to commemorate the attacks’ 13th anniversary, to honor the victims and to remember that all life is special and sacred. But there’s an untold story amid the many speeches and moments of silence — one filled with a different kind of pain, grief and strong sense of loss.

"Remember that in racist, demographics obsessed Israel, the most fearsome "existential threat" is the birth of a Palestinian child."
The father of Zakaria (one of four Palestinian children killed by an Israeli airstrike as they were playing football on the beach) rushed to the hospital after hearing of the attack only to learn that his son had been killed. “He was my only son … he died with his cousins, they all died together,” he told NBC News.
“We live by the coast. There was a headline on the news that four children were injured … so we went looking for the kids and we could not find them, so we came here to the hospital to look for them and we found them all, including my son … oh my God.”
Ashraf al-Qidra, spokesman for the Gaza Health Ministry, said: “This is a cowardly crime.”
"When the first shell hit the land, they ran away but another shell hit them all," said Abu Hassera, 22, whose shirt was stained with blood. "It looked as if the shells were chasing them," he told Reuters.

Chicago: Emergency protest against the bombing of Gaza, July 9, 2014.
More than a thousand people mobilized in less than a day in Chicago to demand an end to Israeli collective punishment against the Palestinian people, which had taken more than 70 lives by the end of the rally and march. Protesters have vowed to step up their opposition to U.S. policy that bankrolls Israel’s occupation of Palestine and apartheid policies in the region.
