Never Forget - 15 Years Later

People observe a moment of silence at 8:46 a.m., the time American Airlines Flight 11 struck the North Tower on September 11, 2001, by the North Pool at World Trade Center in New York on September 11.

Two of the passenger jets brought down the Twin Towers of New York City's World Trade Center, another hit the Pentagon outside Washington and a fourth crashed in a field in Pennsylvania when passengers aboard that flight fought back against the hijackers.

At Ground Zero in New York where the towers once stood, the annual reading of the list of 2,983 people killed at the three sites begis at 8:39 a.m.
It takes more than 190 people three hours to read the list alphabetically.

Moments of silence are observed at 8:46 a.m., 9:03 a.m., 9:37 a.m. and 10:03 a.m., the times of impact for the four planes, and again at 9:59 a.m. and 10:28 a.m., the times that the South Tower and then the North Tower fell.

Let us Never Forget them.

Never Forget - 11 Years Later

The National September 11 Memorial, built directly over the Twin Towers site, invokes a feeling of peace and serenity amidst the everyday chaos of New York with 400 white oaks and two illuminated reflecting pools.

The memorial officially opened to the public on September 12, 2011, and the museum opens on September 11, 2012.

The names of 2,983 victims are inscribed on 76 bronze plates attached to the parapet walls which form the edges of the memorial pools.

Never Forget - Years Later

"A recommended read for any true story fanatic and anyone who would like an insiders perspective into the tragedy. It definately made me phone home and tell my family how much I love them, hitting home that anything could happen to any of us at any time."

At 8:46 a.m. on September 11, 2001, fourteen thousand people were inside the World Trade Center just starting their workdays, but over the next 102 minutes, each would become part of a drama for the ages. Of the millions of words written about this wrenching day, most were told from the outside looking in. New York Times reporters Jim Dwyer and Kevin Flynn draw on hundreds of interviews with rescuers and survivors, thousands of pages of oral histories, and countless phone, e-mail, and emergency radio transcripts to tell the story of September 11 from the inside looking out.

Dwyer and Flynn have woven an epic and unforgettable account of the struggle, determination, and grace of the ordinary men and women who made 102 minutes count as never before.
