Trump to mark 17 years since Sept. 11 at Pennsylvania field

"America is under attack".

After a meeting with relatives of missing firefighters and police officers, a woman handed the president her son's police badge.

"Even though I never met you, I'll never forget you", Isabella Del Corral said of her grandfather, Joseph Piskadlo. He carried the badge with him for the rest of his presidency.

The president also participated in the Pentagon's september 11 observance a year ago. "Roughly one-quarter of our people were born after September the 11th, 2001", he said.

Flight 93 was heading to San Francisco from Newark, New Jersey, when passengers stormed the plane's cockpit and sought to take control from the hijackers, crashing in a field and preventing what was thought to be another planned target in Washington.

President Donald Trump greeted supporters with a clenched jaw and double fist pumps as he arrived at a Pennsylvania airport for a 9/11 memorial service, prompting a social media backlash over what many said were inappropriate gestures for the weighty day.

Sooner than he spoke, Trump listened as the names of the 40 victims had been read aloud, followed by the tolling of bells.

"Our college students aren't old enough to remember firsthand what happened here", he said. "They hoped to break our spirit, and they failed".

Today, 9/11, is a day of reflection for Americans - and especially New Yorkers. "Let's not trivialise them".

Trump also has said he lost "hundreds of friends" in the NY attack.

On September 11, 2001, the plane - one of four commandeered by Al-Qaeda militants - crashed into a field in the small town of Shanksville, about 130 miles (200 kilometers) northwest of Washington. Some tearful readers mentioned how much they miss their loved ones.

Tower of Voices is a living memorial in sound.

President Donald Trump on Tuesday remembered the "band of courageous patriots" aboard a September 11 flight that crashed in Pennsylvania, praising passengers and crew members who resisted hijackers and sent a message that the nation would "never, ever submit to tyranny".

Standing within the self-discipline the attach the last of the 11th of September planes crashed, President Donald Trump praised the "band of heroic patriots" who helped bring down the jetliner and saved the lives of endless others within the nation's capital.

A staggering 2,823 people were killed that day.

Seventeen years after losing her husband, Margie Miller went to the New York City ceremony from her home in suburban Baldwin.

Sinodinos says it's better to commemorate the day there than to sit around "being depressed".

"This memorial is now a message to the world", he said. She calls the progress "amazing".
