With special ceremonies and memorials on Wednesday, Americans remembered 9/11 to “never forget” 18 years after the deadliest terrorist attacks on American soil.

“A beautiful September morning was marred by stark disbelief, agonizing sorrow, and profound suffering,” President Trump said in a statement on Tuesday. “America’s strength, courage, and compassion, however, never wavered.”
