  • Note of recognition for 9/11 passengers' bravery

A total of nearly 3,000 people were killed on september 11, 2001.

President Donald Trump is marking 17 years since the worst terrorist attack on USA soil by visiting the Pennsylvania field that became a September 11 memorial.

Members of the U.N. Security Council stood for a moment of silence led by U.S. Ambassador Nikki Haley.

Standing within the self-discipline the attach the last of the 11th of September planes crashed, President Donald Trump praised the "band of heroic patriots" who helped bring down the jetliner and saved the lives of endless others within the nation's capital.

The president and his wife Melania sat solemnly as the names of all 40 passengers and crew members killed were read out close to where the Boeing 757 slammed into the ground in Shanksville, Pa.

Relatives of the 40 people killed in the hijacking on September 11, 2001, attended the tower's dedication ceremony yesterday at the Flight 93 National Memorial site in Shanksville, Pennsylvania.

"It's the anniversary of one of the worst tragedies in American history - and Donald Trump is PUMPED!" tweeted Chicago tribune columnist Rex Huppke. A writer for the New York Times once wrote of its importance musing that it "succeeds because it offers no narrative, no interpretation, no mediation".

While some of the workers said they couldn't hear him, Bush said: "I can hear you!"

It's not surprising that Donald Trump (who, yes, is actually our president) embarrassed himself on 9/11 today. This memorial is now a message to the world: "America will never ever submit to tyranny", said Mr. Trump.

Today, President Trump, the First Lady, Vice President Mike Pence, and the Second Lady honored these two communities in separate ceremonies, while U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley attended a commemoration at Ground Zero in NY.

But he also offered a vision of the country not defined by the 17-year-old attacks.

She's pleased with the construction of the memorial and buildings at the World Trade Center.

"I get very anxious for the state of society".

The plane crashed into a field in rural Shanksville, where a permanent memorial called the "Tower of Voices" has been erected. Researchers have documented elevated rates of respiratory ailments, post-traumatic stress disorder and other illnesses among people who spent time in the rubble.

More than $4.3 billion has been given to the victims and their families via the 9/11 victims compensation fund.

Meanwhile, a subway station destroyed on 9/11 finally reopened Saturday.

"We must never forget what took place here".
