Heroes of Flight 93 remembered at "Tower of Voices" memorial

Heroes of Flight 93 remembered at

And President Trump paid homage Tuesday at a memorial service in Shanksville, Pennsylvania, to the almost 7,000 service members who have "died facing down the menace of radical Islamic terrorism".

The crash site was far short of the attackers' goal: the US capital.

New York City is taking note of the 17th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks on Tuesday, with a gathering at the World Trace Center memorial plaza.

At 10:03 a.m., the moment Flight 93 crashed, the names of the 40 passengers and crews members who died will be read and bells will be rung in their memory.

Felt spoke earlier in the day, also lauding his brother and others who took action on Flight 93 for their courage in the skies above Somerset County in 2001.

Senator John Cornyn, a Texas Republican, was among those who noted this was the first year that Americans born after the attacks would be old enough to enlist in the USA military. He also tweeted quotes from Fox News about a series of familiar grievances, including the Russian Federation probe and the Department of Justice.

The story of the doomed flight - which was meant to head from Newark, New Jersey to San Francisco - has been the subject of several films including "United 93" by director Paul Greengrass.

This is South Africa’s murder capital
Politicians across party lines have expressed dissatisfaction with the almost seven percent increase in murders in South Africa . KwaZulu-Natal is the most risky province for women and children, as 20 per cent of the murders occurred within KZN borders.

"We must never forget what took place here".

He also recognized the 5.5 million Americans that he said had enlisted in the armed services since the attacks. "It was here that freedom took its traumatic stand". But through the bravery and sacrifice of passengers and crew, he said, "the Forty" spared Washington from a devastating strike.

"For in their passing they empowered us forever". "They did not know who they were saving".

They were ultimately unable to gain control of the cockpit - and everyone aboard perished when the plane went down in a field. They fought until the very end. "America will never, ever submit to tyranny", Trump said, noting that almost 5.5 million Americans had joined the USA military since 9/11.

Trump and his wife, Melania, traveled to the Flight 93 National Memorial from Washington and paused for a moment of reflection while overlooking the field where the plane crashed.

"40 Wall Street actually was the second-tallest building in downtown Manhattan, and it was actually, before the World Trade Center, was the tallest - and then, when they built the World Trade Center, it became known as the second tallest", he said.
