& # 39; For me, he is here. This is my sacred place, "his widow said before the ceremony began with a moment of silence and bells at 8:46 a.m., at which point the mall was hit by the first of two planes piloted by terrorists.
Trump and Pence went to the other two places where the hijacked planes crashed on September 11, 2001, in the deadliest terrorist attack in US territory.
Trump took the occasion of last year's anniversary to issue a stern warning to extremists that "the United States can not be intimidated."
Nearly 3,000 people died in the September 11 attacks, when international terrorism hit home in a way it did not have for many Americans before. September 11th still shapes the politics, politics and everyday experiences of the United States in places from airports to office buildings, even if it is a constant presence in the public consciousness after 17 years.
A clear reminder came shortly after last year's anniversary: a truck knocked down people, killing eight, on a bike lane a few blocks from the World Trade Center on Halloween.
In December, a suspected suicide bomber blew up a tube bomb in an underground passageway near Times Square, authorities said. They said the suspects in both attacks were inspired by the extremist Islamic State group.

The commemorations of 9/11 are already familiar rituals, centered on reading the names of the dead. But every year in ground zero, the relatives of the victims infuse the ceremony with personal messages of remembrance, inspiration and concern.
For Nicholas Haros Jr., that concern is the officials who make comparisons with September 11 or invoke it for political purposes.
& Stop; For, "begged Haros, who lost his 76-year-old mother, Frances." Please, stop using the bones and ashes of our loved ones as accessories in your political theater. "Their lives, sacrifices and deaths are worth much more, let's not trivialize them.

This year's anniversary occurs when a cycle of mid-term elections is launched. But for a long time some efforts have been made to separate the solemn anniversary from politics.
The 9/11 Day group, which promotes volunteering at an anniversary that was declared a national service day in 2009, usually asks candidates not to campaign or publish political notices for the day. The organizers of the ground zero ceremony allow politicians to attend, but since 2011 they have been excluded from reading names or making comments.
Hours after the ceremony, two powerful beams of light will fly into the night sky from lower Manhattan in the 'Tribute in Light'. annual.
The September 11 memorials continue to grow in Shanksville, where the Tower of Voices will include a wind chime for each of the 40 people killed there, and ground zero, where work will soon begin on a path to honor the rescue and recovery workers.
