People across the country are marking the 12th anniversary of the September 11 terrorist attacks today.
Families will gather at the National Memorial in New York City, now a symbol of where the World Trade Towers once stood.
Relatives will read the names of the almost 3,000 people who lost their lives when two planes crashed into the towers.
"Over time you get the opportunity to reflect more on the life he lived than how he died," said Jay Winuk, whose brother passed away on 9/11/2001.
One World Trade Center now stretches into the void left by the fallen towers.
It will be finished early next year, and by spring the 9/11 Museum will also be complete.
