Tragedy unfolded between 8:45 and 9:15 a.m. on September 11, 2001. During this short 30-minute span of time, American Airlines Flight 11 and United Airlines Flight 175 crashed into the World Trade Center's Twin Towers in lower Manhattan and AA Flight 77 barreled into the Pentagon in Arlington, Virginia. Twelve years later, one international hotel chain is uniting still-grieving Americans... with free coffee and baked goods.
