September 11 terrorist attacks: NY marks 18 years since 9/11 carnage

US Representative Ilhan Omar arrives for the Congressional Black Caucus ceremony to commemorate the 400th anniversary of the first recorded forced arrival of enslaved Africans in the Emancipation Hall of the US Capitol in Washington DC on September Ilhan Omar Changes Tune ‘September 11th Was an Attack on All of Us’ 1,097MANDEL NGAN AFP Getty Images Hannah Bleau11 Sep 2019

In addition to those killed on September 11, thousands of first responders, construction workers and residents have since developed illness, many of them terminal, as a result of inhaling the toxic fumes.

"They do that all the time, especially women of color, they take our words out of context because they're afraid because we speak truth, we speak truth to power", Tlaib said.

Vice President Mike Pence is expected to begin speaking soon. And our nation's founding on Judeo-Christian principles were attacked.

Victims' relatives and dignitaries were gathered on the memorial plaza at the World Trade Center in NY as the ceremony started at 8:46 a.m. Wednesday.

"Today I am here to tell you exactly who did what to whom".

In April, a video of Omar went viral, which featured remarks about the September 11, 2001, attacks, insisting that "some people did something".

Former President George W. Bush, commander in chief at the time of the 2001 attacks, was due at an afternoon wreath-laying at the Pentagon.

"In their honor, let us also reaffirm our sense of solidarity and commitment to our most cherished values". In what has become an annual tradition, relatives began reading out the long list of those who were killed, saying a few words about those who died, in a ceremony that takes nearly four hours.

Tropical system moving toward Gulf
This system isn't expected to develop over the next few days as it moves very slowly to the west-northwest across the Bahamas. A broad low pressure system associated with a tropical wave is located about 800 miles east of the lesser Antilles.

Earlier on Wednesday, Omar tweeted about the 9/11 attacks and used the term "terror attack" in the message.

The speaker's remarks were an unusual deviation into partisan politics and religious division at the somber annual ceremony held at the site where Islamist al Qaeda hijackers flew planes into the World Trade Center in 2001, killing almost 3,000 people.

Americans are commemorating 9/11 with mournful ceremonies, volunteering, appeals to "never forget" and rising attention to the terror attacks' extended toll on responders.

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez of NY, who was 11 when the hijacked planes struck the Twin Towers, retweeted a video posted by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi showing lawmakers observing a moment of silence in Washington. Over the summer, Congress made sure the fund won't run dry.

Trump, a Republican and a New Yorker who was in the city on 9/11, signed the measure in July. The memorial was erected in the spring in honor of the firefighters, police officers, and others who died of 9/11-related toxins after the attack.

But those who fell ill or were injured, and their families, say having a tribute at ground zero carries special significance.

September 11 is known not only as a day for remembrance and patriotism, but also as a day of service.
