For the first time since 2001, September 11 falls on a Tuesday.For most of the nation, it’s business as usual today. Appalachian State University officials, for example, say not to expect an official ceremony.
At the sixth annual anniversary event at Ground Zero in New York, however, it’s a different story.
There, firefighters and rescue personnel will read the names of the 2, 975 people killed in the attacks. For the first time, those names will include an attorney who died of lung disease five months after September 11. Presidential candidate Rudy Guilani will also speak, despite controversy as to whether or not he should with the upcoming election.
In addition to those killed at the World Trade Center, 40 were killed when a hijacked plane crashed into Pennsylvania. 184 people died at the Pentagon.
