2 planes hit the world trade center on September 11 2001September 11 is being commemorated today.

The most prominent feature is that, the politics and the campaigns have stemmed down the heat to honor and remember the day when the security of the American nation was dangerously breached. This is the day when the Americans were caught unaware and hit hard and they felt the heat just as the Al Qaeda terrorists wanted. September 11 is the day when terrorists forced four airplanes to crash into the World Trade Center towers in New York City, a field in Shanks-Ville, Pennsylvania, and the Pentagon in Washington, killing nearly 3,000 people.

Both Barrack Obama and John McCain will visit the ground zero to commemorate along other Americans. This will be on the afternoon, in New York where both Obama and McCain will visit ground zero together for a somber, silent wreath-laying in the pit that marks the largest loss of life in the attacks. Besides, there are no political rallies and schedules today. Obama is scheduled for a late lunch with former president Bill Clinton.

On a joint statement the two candidates send a very powerful message, their promise was that they will stand by the fellow American together on 9/11 not as Democrats or Republicans but as Americans their statement said.

They expounded what are their agenda on Thursday, we will put aside politics and come together to renew that unity, to honor the memory of each and every American who died, and to grieve with families and friends who lost loved ones.”

War hero McCain may find Ground Zero a congenial setting to remind voters nationwide what he shares with the New York City firefighters who gave the last full measure of commitment in the towers that day. McCain also led the fight to ascertain the September 11 Commission, which exposed the flaws in U.S. intelligence before the terrorist attacks.

Boston will also be a key feature since the planes departure was at the Boston airport. People will be in services there.

The memorial museum is also a key event where people will tour and pay respects as they ponder on what happened that day.
