Meanwhile, Vice President Mike Pence is reportedly at the Pentagon, where a plane crashed directly into the building. "Photo from last year.your tie, Melania and ivanka dress, hicks, cobb, omorosa in pic", Cecelia Nardslico tweeted.

He has talked about, when talking about Muslims, that "thousands of people had been cheering" in Jersey Metropolis, Original Jersey, across the Hudson River from lower The giant apple, as the towers collapsed.

President Donald Trump greeted supporters with a clenched jaw and double fist pumps as he arrived at a Pennsylvania airport for a 9/11 memorial service, prompting a social media backlash over what many said were inappropriate gestures for the weighty day. "Today, we mourn their loss; we share their story". "Roughly one-quarter of our people were born after September the 11th, 2001", he said.

Felt, whose brother Edward died aboard Flight 93, recalled that the passengers came together and developed a plan to confront the terrorists "in just 35 minutes", having learned that hijacked planes had already been flown into the two towers of the World Trade Center and the Pentagon.

Trump noted that almost 7,000 service members have died since september 11 and - using terminology avoided by his predecessors - said they were "facing down the menace of radical Islamic terrorism".

Tuesday marks the 17th anniversary of the September 11th terror attacks.

Parents, children, siblings and grandchildren were among them.

The plane crashed into a field in the rural Pennsylvanian town, where a permanent memorial called the "Tower of Voices" has been erected.

Mr Trump praised the passengers' "incredible valour" and said their revolt was "the moment America fought back".

Those remarks were met with cheers and applause from the crowd.

"Hero is one of the most overused words in any language, we may bestow this title too frequently, but the people who found themselves on Flight 93, in the skies above us are in fact, heroes", Wolf said.

"Please know that I am still in awe of them", Schweiker said.

The importance of remembrance was not stressed by Felt alone. Flight 93 was believed to be heading for the U.S. Capitol when it went down in Shanksville.

Schweiker spoke about a recent experience he had with college students and the realization that it produced. "Hundreds packed flight bags they would not live to open".

A memorial service will take place beginning at 9:45 a.m. on September 11th at the Flight 93 Visitor Center.

'His leadership, bravery and skill must never be forgotten.

"No terrorist act can never change who we are", has pointed out, in a tweet, his predecessor, democrat Barack Obama. Victims' relatives who had brought signs bearing photos of their loved ones wordlessly held them high.

Other memorials which took place include a ceremony at the site where the twin towers once stood.
