Plans to mark 20th anniversary of 9/11 attacks begin to take shape in NYC

Six months from now, New York and the nation will pause to remember the 20th anniversary of the Sept. 11, 2001 terrorist attacks — a day of infamy that remains all too vivid and recent in the minds of those who witnessed it.

On Thursday, the 9/11 Memorial and Museum outlined some of the ways it will honor the nearly 3,000 Americans killed in the coordinated attacks upon the World Trade Center in Lower Manhattan, the Pentagon in Washington, DC and in Shanksville, Pennsylvania — where hijacked United Airlines Flight 93 crashed before it could reach its target in the nation’s capitol.
