As Friday marks the 14th anniversary of the Sept. 11 attacks on New York City and Washington, D.C., a memorial in the name of Flight 93 opened in Shanksville, Pennsylvania.
The terrorist attacks killed approximately 3,000 people, including civilians, law enforcement officers, firefighters and military personnel, and was the deadliest attack on American soil.
Memorials to the victims stand in New York City, where the Twin Towers once stood, at the Pentagon and in a field in Shanksville, where Flight 93 passengers brought down a plane and averted an attack on a third building.
The Shanksville site has a new $26 million memorial visitor center that opened this week.

Recently, the children of 9/11, those born on Sept. 11, 2001, participated in an uplifting campaign, talking about the power of doing good and turning hate into hope.
Although the brutal attacks claimed many innocent lives, 14 years later people have more hope in their hearts as they remember the victims of terrorism and look forward to a better world.
