    On September 11, 2001, 19 militants associated with the Islamic extremist group al-Qaeda hijacked four airliners and carried out suicide attacks against targets in the United States. Two of the planes were flown into the towers of the World Trade Center in New York City, a third plane hit the Pentagon just outside Washington, D.C., and the fourth plane crashed in a field in Pennsylvania.

    Because the Trade Center became a "ruin" after the attack.

    Man has the right to pin whatever he wants. And on a board called "ruins" it makes sense. plenty of other things on pinterest for those that don't want to look.
