U.S marks 9/11 attacks with tributes, condolences and commemorations

New monuments and somber tributes were made for the victims as they commemorated the 17th anniversary of the September 9/11 attacks.

Many victims, survivors, and rescuers gathered at the memorial plaza where the two World Trade Center Towers stood. President Trump and Vice President Mike Pence visited the sites where the hijacked planes crashed on September 11th, 2001.

First Lady Melania Trump also joined the observance near Shanksville, Pa. where the jetliners fell to the ground after 40 passengers and crew members realized hijackers had taken control and tried to storm the cockpit. Vice President Mike Pence said the terrorists “hoped to break our spirit and they failed”

9/11 is considered one of the deadliest terror attacks on the American Soil – killing 3,000 people in the attacks. The incident has completely reshaped America’s policies in airports, office buildings, politics and international borders and continues to do so until today. After performing the rituals of reading the names of the victims they also reopened the New York City Station that collapsed under the weight of the World trade center debris with stunning new interiors and better technology indoors.
