Ceremonies were held across the region Tuesday to commemorate the 17th Anniversary of the September 11th terrorist attacks. In Buffalo, fire fighters held a large American flag from the pedestrian bridge over the Sqajaquada Expressway, in Delaware Park.

There were somber ceremonies in New York City, in Shanksville, Pa., and at the Pentagon on Tuesday as President Trump, along with survivors and families of those killed on this date, remembered Sept. 11, 17 years after the terrorist attack.

Trump, speaking at the Flight 93 National Memorial, said, "A piece of America's heart is buried in these grounds, but in its place has grown a new resolve to live our lives with the same grace and courage as the heroes of Flight 93."
