"The Memorial Mission Remember and honor the thousands of innocent men, women, and children murdered by terrorists in the horrific attacks of February 26, 1993 and September 11, 2001. Respect this place made sacred through tragic loss. Recognize the endurance of those who survived, the courage of those who risked their lives to save others, and the compassion of all who supported us in our darkest hours."
The National Commission on Terrorist Attacks Upon the United States (also known as the 9-11 Commission), an independent, bipartisan commission created by congressional legislation and the signature of President George W. Bush in late 2002, is chartered to prepare a full and complete account of the circumstances surrounding the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks, including preparedness for and the immediate response to the attacks. The Commission is also mandated to provide recommendations designed to guard against future attacks.
Tells the story of Flight 93 and the memorial plans for the crash site by the U.S. Park Service

On September 11, 2001, terrorists hijacked a plane and flew it into the Pentagon, our nation’s military headquarters, and killed 184 federal employees, military personnel, civilians and flight crew. The victims – men, women, and children– ranged in age from three to 71, and represented a cross-section of America. The physical damage to the Pentagon was rebuilt in less than one year, but the attacks forever changed our world. This website allows you to explore the memorial.
"9/11 didn't end on 9/11. To commemorate the 10th anniversary of the attacks, TIME brings you untold stories from 40 men and women whose lives changed that day — from the first responders at the World Trade Center to the warriors of Iraq and Afghanistan, from the architects of the 10-year pursuit of Osama bin Laden to the survivors who rebuilt their lives after enduring unspeakable tragedy. Their words and images, captured in stunning black-and-white portraits by photographer Marco Grob, offer a powerful tribute to the spirit of resilience."
