Do you remember where you were on that fateful day years ago? I was on the bus to work listening to the radio on my walkman (which played tapes) when I heard the news. I remember looking around at others on the bus to see if any of them had heard too. When I arrived at work everyone was crowded around the tv. What unfolded was something I have never forgotten.
Tuesday, September 11, 2001 is forever a day I will remember.
Every year there are certain things I do. Certain things that I always read. Images that strike me.
I see this article every year on this date and I avoid reading it. For some reason, I feel different today. 18 years seems far enough away now.https://t.co/N8wJpw0wDI— Peter (@PeteHeacock) September 11, 2019
How is America remembering today?
Today and every day, we pledge to honor our history, to treasure our liberty, to uplift our communities, to live up to our values, to prove worthy of our heroes, and above all, to NEVER FORGET. #Honor911 pic.twitter.com/3xbEvl92py— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) September 11, 2019
As we remember those we lost on 9/11, we also remember the spirit of unity and togetherness that defined the weeks and months after. On this day of service, I’m reflecting on all those still working to embrace that spirit, today and every day. https://t.co/y8x9PVcwDl— Barack Obama (@BarackObama) September 11, 2019

Official 11 Year Time-Lapse Movie of One World Trade Center
In recognition of the opening of One World Observatory in New York City, EarthCam released a special edition of our One World Trade Center video. I know I have watched and shared this commemorative time-lapse that shows the building progress from October 2004 to Memorial Day 2015.
Over 11 years, EarthCam's construction cameras captured hundreds of thousands of high definition images and their Creative Team hand-edited the footage to create this exclusive movie. This time-lapse video shows the construction of One World Trade Center over 11 years and marked the opening of its 100th floor observation deck.
"It's our mission to continue to document this for future generations, so people can see what it took to rebuild these important 16 acres." Brian Cury, EarthCam's CEO & Founder"
