18 YEARS LATER, ADAY TO REMEMBER 9/11 VICTIMS

Norma Molina of San Antonio, Texas, leaves flowers by the names of firefighters from Manhattan's Engine Company 33 at the September 11 Memorial in New York City. Americans will hold tributes Wednesday for victims of 9/11 on the 18th anniversary of the deadliest terrorist acts on American soil. Tributes will be held at the three sites directly scarred by the attacks as well as cities around the country, including Omaha. Nearly 3,000 people died as a direct result of the attacks, but many more died indirectly from toxins in the air near Ground Zero in New York City.
