Remembering 9/11 on its 20th anniversary

“We’ll live with the scars for the rest of our lives.”

20 years after 9/11, the families of 4 victims reflect on the life-shattering losses from the attack and the road to healing.

The 20th anniversary of the September 11, 2001, terrorist attacks were marked around the globe by tearful ceremonies and somber tributes. Officials reflected on the lessons learned after 9/11 and how that resilience can be relied upon again to revive the U.S. as it continues to grapple with a crippling pandemic.

Back then, the world froze as four hijacked planes slammed into the World Trade Center, the Pentagon and a Pennsylvania field and brought nearly 3,000 people to their deaths. Lower Manhattan was torn to pieces, residents unsure if it would ever recover. Washington was under attack. Americans were terrified. Global markets plunged.

In the two decades since, foreign policy has been upended. Security measures at global borders, airports and office buildings reshaped travel and international business. New York City was transformed.
