NEW YORK (WKOW) -- The nation remembers the September 11th attacks on this 12th anniversary.
Loved ones of victims will gather at ground zero in New York City to read their names and have moments of silence. Nearly 3,000 people were killed September 11, 2001 when hijacked jets crashed into the World Trade Center towers, the Pentagon and into a field in Shanksville, Pennsylvania.
The Pentagon and the Flight 92 National Memorial in Shanksville plan tributes Wednesday as well.
President Obama and the First Lady will join other White House staff in a moment of silence on the south lawn of the White House before attending the Pentagon memorial.
The 9/11 museum opens at ground zero next spring.
Do you feel the U.S. is safer now than the day of the September 11 attacks?
