NEW YORK — The nation paused on Sunday to remember the nearly 3,000 lives lost 15 years ago when Islamic terrorists launched a coordinated attack on two World Trade Center towers and the Pentagon, and hijacked a fourth plane destined for an unknown location.
Memorial services were held in New York and Washington today, as well as in a Pennsylvania field where passengers aboard Flight93 lost their lives after valiantly fighting their hijackers.
“It’s all very beautiful because you are surrounded by people who are going through and feeling the same thing you are going through,” Nancy Shakouri, sister of Dennis Scauso, a firefighter who lost his life helping others, told reporters. “We can’t imagine being anywhere else on this day.”
