Flight 93 Tower of Voices Comes to Life

Flight 93 Tower of Voices Comes to Life

In between, relatives will read aloud the names of those killed at the Twin Towers, and also the names of those who died in the February 26, 1993, bombing of the World Trade Center.

Sixteen years after the nation's deadliest terrorist attack, the relatives of those lost at the World Trade Center will gather once more at the National September 11 Memorial & Museum to honor the almost 3,000 people who were killed that day.

Some said they could not believe that 16 years had passed since the tragedy.

President Donald Trump, a native New Yorker, attended the ceremony for the first time as President.

40 chimes, playing all in harmony, in remembrance of the 40 people who died in the plane crash on 9/11 here in Shanksville.

On the White House lawn, Mr Trump took part in a ceremony to remember the victims and then went to the Pentagon for a second commemoration. This was followed by a wreath-laying ceremony and brief speeches.

Vice President Mike Pence is at ceremony outside the park's visitor center in Shanksville. Four planes were hijacked by members of the Islamic terrorist group al-Qaeda for these attacks.

This was evident from the usual sights of office workers rushing to their place of work, small shopkeepers inviting customers to buy their merchandise, or food cart vendors selling coffee and bagels to the people working in the neighbourhood. A Greek Orthodox church, which was destroyed when one of the trade centre buildings collapsed, is expected to open in 2018, according to tentative plans announced. Though our country was wounded that day, today we remind the world that terrorism will never defeat the United States.

It took students of Immaculate Heart of Mary School in Cuyahoga Falls, Ohio, around three hours to travel to the Flight 93 National Memorial Monday for the 16th anniversary of September 11, 2001. Their loss will always weigh heavy in our hearts.

"The last memory that many [family members] have of the people on the plane is through voices on those phone calls", said Paul Murdoch.
