20 Years AfterFamilies, friends and politicians gathered in remembrance of the Flight 93 crash on the 20th anniversary.

Saturday, September 11, 2021, marked the 20th anniversary of the attacks of 9/11/2001.

In Shanksville, Pennsylvania families and friends of the victims of United Flight 93 gathered to observe the day. Former President George W. Bush, Pennsylvania Governor Tom Wolf and Vice President Kamala Harris were among the speakers at the tribute to the crew and passengers who regained control of the plane, forcing it to crash in Pennsylvania instead of its intended target in Washington D.C.

Family members read the names of each of the 40 victims of the crash and following the ceremony President Joe Biden arrived to lay a wreath in their memory.

Centre County Report's Katy Shero shares the thoughts of Emily Schenkel, cousin and goddaughter of Lorraine Bay, a flight attendant killed when flight 93 was hijacked by terrorists and crashed in a field in Somerset County 20 years ago.
