911 Anniversary America Remembers Lives Lost On One Of Its Darkest Days

911 Anniversary America Remembers Lives Lost On One Of Its Darkest Days

Bells will toll and tears will flow as the nation marks a dark day in sorrowful yet hopeful ceremonies.

Fourteen years ago today, terrorists hijacked passenger planes and rammed two into New York City's World Trade Center, and a third one into the Pentagon in Washington.

A fourth jetliner crash-landed on an empty field in Pennsylvania.

By the time the carnage was over, terrorists had killed 2,977 people in one of the deadliest attacks on American soil.

People, buildings and planes fell from the sky. Terrified strangers became friends as Americans united on a day that changed the world forever.

Today, like every other anniversary after it happened , a resilient nation will look forward to the future, but remember the past.

Here are the main events that will pay tribute to the many lives lost on September 11, 2001:

GROUND ZERO

At the World Trade Center, where most of the victims were, bagpipers and drummers will provide solemn tunes to accompany the ceremony.

The names of the dead will echo as those gathered read them out and mark moments of silence at the specific times when the planes struck and the towers tumbled.

The first plane hit the north tower at 8:46 a.m. The second one struck at 9:03 a.m.

In this attack, 2,753 people died when terrorists intentionally crashed American Airlines Flight 11 and United Airlines Flight 175 in the north and south towers.

Of those who perished in these attacks and the collapse of the towers, more than 300 were firefighters who ran into the building while others rushed out.
