Neither rain nor cold kept away 9/11 mourners in Pennsylvania, where a tower of wind chimes was dedicated Sunday to the heroes of United Flight 93. The 93-foot-tall tower is part of the Flight 93 National Memorial in Shanksville.

Speaking at the Pentagon, one of the three sites attacked with hijacked airplanes on september 11, 2001, Trump said, "the terrorists who attacked us thought they could incite fear and weaken our spirit".

After calling their loved ones to say final farewells, many passengers aboard Flight 93 are believed to have charged the hijackers and prevented the plane from striking the United States capital.

"This is not a day to talk politics, it is a matter of heart: we need to be united, this is the only way to manage the pain", said Alice Greenwald, president of the memorial, on a local television station NY 1.

"America's future is written by our heroes", Mr Trump said in Shanksville on Tuesday. Another ceremony will take place there.

There were somber ceremonies in New York City, in Shanksville, Pa., and at the Pentagon on Tuesday as President Trump, along with survivors and families of those killed on this date, remembered September 11, 17 years after the terrorist attack.

"A piece of America's heart is buried on these grounds".

Trump tweeted about the trip from Washington in a tweet saying the ceremony honored victims from Flight 93.

The Pennsylvania ceremony was one of a series of commemorations held across the USA to remember all 2,977 victims of the September 2001 attacks. "The terrorists who carried out these attacks sought not just to take the lives of our people and crumble buildings", he said.

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.

All 59 passengers and crew aboard the flight were killed, along with another 125 personnel working in the Pentagon. "And we remember that hatred, disguised in false religious garb to murder innocents, will not prevail", Mattis said.

Trump observed the anniversary for the first time as president previous year, along with the first lady, at the White House.

At the Pentagon, Vice-President Mike Pence recalled the heroism of service members and civilians who repeatedly went back into the Pentagon to rescue survivors. It is believed that the hijackers were hoping to use the plane to attack the Capitol, home to the US House of Representatives and the Senate.

More than 2,000 first responders have died from diseases related to the toxic fumes and dust at Ground Zero in New York City.
