Seventeen years ago today, 2,977 people were killed in the terrorist attacks in New York City, Washington, D.C. and Shanksville, Pennsylvania. That number includes the hundreds of first responders who were killed trying to rescue those who were in the World Trade Center when the towers were struck and collapsed.
Today, people all around the U.S. are remembering and honoring the lives that were lost that day.
President Donald Trump is in Shanksville, Pennsylvania where a new memorial – the “Tower of Voices” – has been installed to remember the 40 people who were killed when United Flight 93 crashed into a field on 9/11.
It’s 93 feet tall featuring 40 wind chimes, and the sound changes with the wind, making what the architect calls a “living memorial.”
