18 years later, the world remembers 9/11
Tributes are paid to the people who lost their lives in the terrorist attacks on September 11, 2001.
A moment of silence was observed at 8:46 a.m. ET to mark the time the first plane hit – American Airlines Flight 11, flying from Boston to Los Angeles, had been hijacked before slamming into the north face of the North Tower.
President Donald Trump joined a moment of silence on the South Lawn of the White House. He was joined by hundreds of guests that included 9/11 survivors and family members and current and former law enforcement personnel.

On this eve 9-10-01 over 2,997 people went to bed looking forward to the next day of early flights, work, protecting, serving & living. None of them knew that the morning of 9-11-01 would be their last day on earth. Take no day for granted because no day is promised. #NeverForget pic.twitter.com/1cn0WxiqFo
