The traumatic events of September 11, 2001 changed America forever. On today’s 17th anniversary, we’re reminded of the resilience of the American people, and the power to unite in a time of tragedy and hopelessness.

Just as the 9/11 Memorial is powerful in its simplicity and sweep, so is the annual commemoration ceremony of reading the names of those killed in the terrorist attacks by the victim’s beloved survivors. You can watch the livestream here starting at 8:40 a.m. (ET).

Tonight, the Tribute In Light at One World Trade honors the anniversary with twin beams of eternal light in remembrance of the dead. Bearing witness to those lost on 9/11 is an honor. Never forget — not now, not ever.
