It’s the 18th anniversary of September 11, 2001,(9/11) the date of the deadliest attacks on US soil since the Japanese bombed Pearl Harbor in World War II.

Nearly 3,000 people died in the 9/11 attacks, which The New York Times called the “worst and most audacious terror attack in American history.”
