9/11 terrorist attack aniversary

The United States is remembering the 20th anniversary of the terrorist attacks on New York and Washington, which killed over 3,000 people and helped shape the twenty-first century.

President Biden will visit the following locations on September 11, 2021:
On Saturday, Biden will visit all three of the sites that sparked the fire: New York City, where American Airlines Flight 11 slammed into the north tower of the World Trade Center at 8:46 a.m. on that sunny September morning — and where United Airlines Flight 175 smashed into the south tower 17 minutes later. He’ll also pay a visit to the Pentagon, where American Airlines Flight 77 went down 34 minutes later.

9/11 attack anniversary is On September 11, 2021

Crowds gathered in lower Manhattan at the National September 11 Memorial & Museum, which stands where the twin towers once stood. President Biden, former Presidents Barack Obama and Bill Clinton, and their wives all attended the ceremony.

They donned blue ribbons and clapped their hands over their hearts as a procession marched a flag through the memorial and stood sadly side by side as family members read aloud the names of the deceased and offered memories and remembrances.

According to the White House, the president and first lady also met with former New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg and Diana Taylor.

History:

Twenty years ago today, a pair of hijacked planes destroyed the World Trade Center towers, another plane punched a gaping hole in the Pentagon, and a fourth passenger jet crashed in a Pennsylvania field after passengers attempted to reclaim control from hijackers, Americans across the country reflected on the events that forever changed their country.

On September 11, 2001, about 3,000 people were killed. The tragedy not only prompted hugely costly and largely unwinnable wars in both Afghanistan and Iraq, but it also produced a domestic war on terrorism, rewriting the laws of security and surveillance in the United States, the ramifications of which are still being felt today.
