News Brief: Americans remember 9/11 victims

Americans paused on Thursday as they recalled the day when nearly 3,000 people were killed after planes struck the World Trade Center, according to the Los Angeles TImes. Obama honored the families of those killed and the military personnel. “They sought to break our spirit and to prove to the world that their power to destroy was greater than our power to persevere and to build,” Obama said. “But you, [troops], and America, proved them wrong.” The national September 11 Memorial Museum also opened for the first time, housing aftifacts and pictures from the attacks. The One World Trade Center is scheduled to hold businesses next year.
