NPR/Friday marks the 19th anniversary of the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks against the United States — the single deadliest instance of a terrorist attack in world history and among the most consequential global policy markers in modern times.

President Trump and first lady Melania Trump attended a morning observance in Shanksville, Pa., where United Flight 93, believed to be headed toward to Washington, D.C., crashed, killing all 40 passengers and crew on board. Former Vice President Joe Biden visited the site later Friday, laying a wreath at the memorial marking the victims’ names.
