This Friday marks the 19th anniversary of 9/11.
This is a somber day of remembrance for the nation. Many Americans can remember precisely what they were doing and where they were 19 years ago, upon learning of the terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center.

Breitbart News furthermore confirms that the president tied in his tribute of 9/11 victims while also discussing American heroism and patriotism.

A Day of Remembrance
Similarly to the president’s speech, several current trends on social media reflect that the nation has not forgotten what happened 19 years ago today.
#NeverForget, #AllBuildingsMatter, #AlwaysRemember, and Flight 93 are presently trending on Twitter. The latter trend acknowledges that particular flight’s work to regain control of the plane from the terrorists that hijacked it.
United Flight 93 will always be the 9/11 story that hits me the hardest.
The passengers knew they were dead, and had a choice to make. They could let the terrorist kill more innocent people, or they could fight back.
