Family members gathered at New York Ground Zero for 19th memorial service of 9/11

119

Hundreds of people arrived at Ground Zero today to honor the victims of the 9/11 tragedy marking the 19th anniversary of the 2001 attack at the World Trade Center in New York.

The sad annual remembrance ceremony started on the Friday morning on 8:30 a.m. at the 9/11 Memorial Plaza, where families and colleagues gathered to mourn the dead of the terroristic attacks.

Democratic president candidate Joe Biden flew in from Delaware to join the grim anniversary. Gov. Cuomo and New York Mayor Bill De Blasio also attended the event.

“I’m not gonna make any news today," Biden told reporters. "I’m not going to talk about anything other than 9/11. We took all our advertising down. It’s a solemn day. That’s how we’re going to keep it.”

Since the World Trade Center towers collapsed on September 11, 2011 this year was the first when there was no live reading of the 2,753 names of the victims killed in the tragedy. The guests were also asked to social distance and to wear medical masks.

However, this year there are two separate services are planned. The other service, arranged by the Stephen Siller Tunnel to Towers Foundation, will take place a few blocks away from Ground Zero.
