Victims honored at 9/11 Flight Crew Memorial in Grapevine

Note of recognition for 9/11 passengers' bravery

One of the hijacked planes on 9/11 - Flight 93 - crashed-landed in a field in that town after passengers bravely fought back against the hijackers and tried to take control back of the aircraft.

Almost 3,000 people died when hijacked planes slammed into the trade center, the Pentagon and a field near Shanksville on september 11, 2001.

In New York, the Bell of Hope rang out at St. Paul's Chapel to mark the moment at 8:46 a.m. when the first of two hijacked planes hit the World Trade Center.

Memorials to 9-11 continue to grow at Shanksville, where a newly dedicated Tower of Voices will eventually include a wind chime for each of the 40 people killed there, and ground zero, where work is to begin soon on a pathway honouring rescue and recovery workers.

It urges: "Never miss a chance to let those held dearest know your love for them". That's near the site of the Flight 93 crash, which saw passengers aboard the jet overpower Al-Qaeda hijackers before they could target major civilian and government centres.

Pence noted that "roughly one-quarter" of Americans were born after September 11, 2001.

The commander-in-chief can be seen in the photo with First Lady Melania Trump, as he's raising both fists in the air and clenching his jaw.

President Donald Trump himself is reportedly visiting the 9/11 memorial near Shanksville, Pennsylvania, along with First Lady Melania Trump. "We will always remember everyone we lost on 9/11, thank the first responders who keep us safe, and honor all who defend our country and the ideals that bind us together".

"Trump is not very good at speaking the language of communal values", said Jennifer R. Mercieca, an associate professor with the department of communication at Texas A&M University who has studied the president's rhetorical style.

Powerful symbol that reminds us just how much this city has been bruised: a subway station that had been destroyed and buried under the debris, has re-opened its doors this weekend, 17 years after the tragedy. Months later, there was a botched pipe bombing in a subway passageway near Times Square.

"They attacked the enemy". Rescuers spent over 200 days searching the huge piles of rubble for victims.

Almost 10,000 of them have had some form of cancer, according to the World Trade Center Health Program.

The 9/11 Victims' Compensation Fund has paid out $US4bn to fund medical expenses for survivors of the terror attacks.

In a sign of how devastating the attacks were to the Big Apple, the Cortlandt Street subway station - left for years under mountains of debris - only reopened on Saturday.
