17 Years Later: Remembering 9-11

The Attack September 11, 2001 Remembered

Americans  commemorated the 17th anniversary of the attacks on September 11th, 2001, on Tuesday with solemn ceremonies,  and a presidential tribute to “the moment when America fought back” on one of the hijacked planes used as weapons in the deadliest terror attack on U.S. soil. Thousands of 9/11 victims’ relatives, survivors, rescuers and others gathered on a misty Tuesday morning at the memorial plaza where the World Trade Center’s twin towers once stood.

President Donald Trump and Vice President Mike Pence headed to the two other places where hijacked planes crashed on Sept. 11, 2001: a Pennsylvania field and the Pentagon. Mr. Trump said the field in Shanksville is now a “monument to American defiance.”

CBS News profiles 9-11 widow, Margie Miller. “Seventeen years after losing her husband, Margie Miller went to the New York City ceremony from her home in suburban Baldwin.

“To me, he is here. This is my holy place,” she said before the hours-long reading of the names of the nearly 3,000 dead, including her husband, Joel Miller.  That sentiment is shared by millions of her fellow citizens.

The 9/11 commemorations are by now familiar rituals, centered on reading the names of the dead. But each year at ground zero, victims’ relatives infuse the ceremony with personal messages of remembrance, inspiration and concern.

Fop. Stop,” pleaded Haros, who lost his 76-year-old mother, Frances. “Please stop using the bones and ashes of our loved ones as props in your political theater. Their lives, sacrifices and deaths are worth so much more. Let’s not trivialize them.”
