Flight 93 'Tower of Voices' Memorial Dedicated on Eve of 9/11 Anniversary

Note of recognition for 9/11 passengers' bravery

The President began the day on a combative streak, tweeting angrily about the Russian Federation investigation from the White House as mourners were gathering in lower Manhattan, at the Pentagon and in the Pennsylvania field where Flight 93 crashed 17 years ago.

Almost 3,000 people died on 11 September 2001, when other planes were flown into New York's World Trade Center and the Pentagon in an attack planned by al-Qaida leader Osama bin Laden.

Commemorating the 17th anniversary of the attacks that struck the World Trade Center in NY and the Pentagon in Washington, Trump said the nation shared the grief of the family members whose loved ones were lost that day.

SHANKSVILLE, Pa. - Americans are commemorating the 17th anniversary of the september 11 terror attacks with somber tributes, volunteer projects and a new monument to victims.

"But in its place has grown a new reminder to live our lives with the same courage as the heroes of Flight 93". "America's future is written by our heroes", Mr Trump said in Shanksville on Tuesday.

He said: "This field now now a message to the world: America will never submit to tyranny".

If not political speeches, some victims' relatives made appeals to patriotism and support for the military and first responders as they read names.
