The United States of America are commemorating the anniversary of one of the nation's most scarring days known as 9/11 today. Thousands of 9/11 victims' relatives, survivors, rescuers and others are expected to gather at the World Trade Center to remember the deadliest terror attack on American soil.

 

 

Nearly 3,000 people died when hijacked planes slammed into the trade center, the Pentagon and a field near Shanksville, Pennsylvania on September 11, 2001. The incident shook America and the world, hurling everyone into a new consciousness of the threat of global terrorism.

 

 

President Donald Trump, a native New Yorker observing the anniversary for the first time as the nation's leader, is scheduled to observe a moment of silence at about the time the first plane struck one of the Twin Towers on the morning of September 11, 2001. He also planned to participate in a 9/11 observance at the Pentagon.
