Westley and Yvonne Thomas from NY always wanted to come to the Flight 93 National Memorial for September 11 ceremonies.

"I always feel a sense of responsibility to give back on the day", O'Neill, of Norwalk, Conn., said as she packed up meals in New York City for needy local people and hurricane victims in Texas and Florida.

The planned route then will take a trail through Lower Makefield and Yardley, with a branch connected to the Garden of Reflection, the official Pennsylvania memorial to the victims of the 9/11 attacks.

On the 16th anniversary of the September 11th, 2001 terror attacks, the names of the almost 3,000 lives lost were read at the National September 11 Memorial Museum.

Four passenger airliners operated by two major US passenger air carriers (United Airlines and American Airlines) - all of which departed from airports in the northeastern United States bound for California - were hijacked by 19 al-Qaeda terrorists.

At 9:03 a.m. United Airlines Flight 175 hit the south tower of the World Trade Center.

"The last memory that many [family members] have of the people on the plane is through voices on those phone calls", said Paul Murdoch. Vice President Mike Pence spoke in Shanksville, the sight of the Flight 93 crash. "We are grateful to our partners at the National Park Service, National Park Foundation and the Friends of Flight 93 National Memorial for the opportunity to work hand in hand from the very beginning in order to create what we feel is an extraordinary memorial to the 40 heroes of Flight 93". The memorial is outside Shanksville, Pennsylvania, where Flight 93 crashed with the loss of its 40 passengers and crew.

At the State House there will be a flag lowering, moment of silence, and reading of names marking the hour the towers were attacked.

"A lot of the pieces are already there, we just need to put them together", said Andrew Hamilton, chairman of the board of directors for the September 11th National Memorial Fund Alliance.
