This year will mark the twenty-first anniversary of the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks. On that day nearly 3,000 people died and over 6,000 were injured when four planes were hijacked by terrorists. Two planes crashed into the World Trade Center towers in New York, one hit the Pentagon building, and the last one crashed into the Pennsylvania countryside when passengers thwarted the attempt to head into Washington D.C., the official target unknown. That fateful day is still fresh in the memory of those who lived through it, and the desire to keep the memories alive of the loved ones who passed is still very present. The 9/11 Memorial & Museum will be providing an in-person and virtual commemoration ceremony at 8:40 a.m. Eastern Daylight Time (EDT) on Sunday, September 11, 2022, for all who desire to gather and honor the survivors and the fallen. There will also be a Flight 93 National Memorial Ceremony at the Memorial Plaza at 9:45 a.m. EDT, which will be live streamed via the Flight 93 National Memorial YouTube channel.
