Remembering Sept. 11, 2001: America under attack

Monday ceremony at Ground Zero marks 16th year since 9/11

"I will always believe that I and many others in our nation's Capitol were able to go home that day to hug our families because of the courage and selflessness of the heroes on Flight 93".

The ceremony focuses on the first responders who perished in the attacks of September 11, 2001, at the World Trade Center in NY. In 2016, commemorating the National Park Service's 100th anniversary, the Foundation launched The Centennial Campaign for America's National Parks, a comprehensive fundraising campaign to strengthen and enhance the future of these national treasures for the next hundred years.

They also rang out to mark other significant timings during that destructive day in 2001, including the moment the south tower collapsed in NY. As tolling bells ring, relatives read out the names of the 3,000 victims from the Twin Towers, the Pentagon, and the flights that were hijacked. Two beams of light will be shot into the sky as a tribute and to symbolize the Twin Towers.

Each ceremony is always different from the last but this year is exclusively focused on reading the names etched in the memorials dedicated to victims.

Five other moments of silence will be observed during the ceremony - 9:03 a.m.to mark when hijackers flew United Airlines Flight 175 into the south tower; 9:37 a.m., the moment American Airlines Flight 77 struck the Pentagon; 9:59 a.m., when the south tower came crashing down; 10:03 a.m., the time United Airlines Flight 93 crashed near Shanksville, Pennsylvania; and 10:28 a.m.to mark the fall of the north tower.

Speaking in Virginia, the President issued a warning to extremists, saying "America can not be intimidated" and those who try will join the list of enemies "who dared to test our mettle".
