Flight 93 'Tower of Voices' Memorial Dedicated on Eve of 9/11 Anniversary

9/11 The day America and the world changed forever

The 40 passengers and crew members on board attempted to regain control of the jet after speaking to relatives on the phone and learning the hijacking was part of a larger plot targeting the World Trade Center in NY.

Today, people all around the US are remembering and honoring the lives that were lost that day. It will head to Austin next.

Americans have looked back on the September 11 terror attacks with solemn ceremonies and a presidential tribute to "the moment when America fought back".

Those aboard United Flight 93, told over the phone by their loved ones that two other passengers jets had smashed into New York's World Trade Center, tried to regain control of their aircraft.

Under a grey sky in Shanksville, Pennsylvania, Trump praised the courage of the 40 men and women aboard Flight 93 who rushed the four hijackers who had diverted the plane and were targeting Washington.

U.S. President Donald Trump and first lady Melania Trump walk with park superintendent Stephen Clark at the Flight 93 National Memorial during the 17th annual September 11 observance at the memorial near Shanksville, Pennsylvania, U.S., September 11, 2018.

The recent attacks scare Ruben Perez, who read names at the trade centre Tuesday.

Trump remembered the almost 3,000 people killed in the attacks on the World Trade Center, the Pentagon and aboard Flight 93, which went down in Shanksville.

Activists Raise Over $800,000 So Susan Collins Won't Support Kavanaugh
This month's Supreme Court confirmation hearings have highlighted deeply held fears that abortion rights are in danger. Republicans now hold a slim 51-49 majority in the Senate and only 51 votes are required to confirm Kavanaugh.

Trump acknowledged the completion of the Tower of Voices, a new monument at the Flight 93 memorial site featuring wind chimes for each of the 40 Americans who died on the flight.

President Donald Trump is scheduled to speak at the ceremony in Shanksville, Pa., according to the National Park Service.

Senator John Cornyn, a Texas Republican, was among those who noted this was the first year that Americans born after the attacks would be old enough to enlist in the U.S. military. But each year at ground zero, victims' relatives infuse the ceremony with personal messages of remembrance, inspiration and concern.

"Please know that I am still in awe of them", Schweiker said.

Her critics have suggested the first lady's tweet is "narcissistic" because it contains a photo of her and her husband rather than patriotic imagery or art specific to the lives lost on September 11.

Trump also said he lost "hundreds of friends" in the attack on New York City.

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