President Joe Biden marked 21st anniversary of the Sept. 11 attacks, taking part in a somber wreath-laying ceremony at the Pentagon held under a steady rain and urged people to take part in protecting American democracy.

Americans are remembering 9/11 with tear-choked tributes and pleas to “never forget” 21 years after the deadliest terror attack on U.S. soil.

Victims’ relatives and dignitaries are gathering Sunday at all three places where hijacked jets crashed on Sept. 11, 2001 – the World Trade Center in New York, the Pentagon and a Pennsylvania field.

Vice President Kamala Harris is attending the ceremony in New York, Biden at the Pentagon, while first lady Jill Biden is in Shanksville. The attacks killed nearly 3,000 people, spurred a U.S. “war on terror” and affect American politics and public life to this day.
