NEW YORK, NEW YORK - SEPTEMBER 11: Flowers are seen on the names of the victims of the 9/11 terror attack at the North Tower Memorial Pool during the annual 9/11 Commemoration Ceremony at the National 9/11 Memorial and Museum on September 11, 2022 in New York City. This year marks the 21st anniversary of the terror attacks of September 11, 2001, when the terrorist group al-Qaeda flew hijacked airplanes into the World Trade Center, Shanksville, PA and the Pentagon, killing nearly 3,000 people.

On September 11, 2001, two planes were flown into the World Trade Center in New York City and a third plane hit the Pentagon in Arlington, Virginia.

Nearly 3,000 people were killed in the horrific attacks that took place that day, and more than 700 of those people lived in or were from New Jersey.

Since that day when the series of airline hijackings and suicide attacks were committed, the United States has never been the same. However, each year, and once again on the 22nd anniversary, New Jerseyans will come together to honor and remember the lives we lost on 9/11.

“We need to acknowledge a day of rest and remembrance so that everyone is given the opportunity to observe 9/11, whether by attending a ceremony, visiting a local memorial, thanking a first responder or talking to our children about what happened on 9/11,” said Monmouth County Commissioner Director Thomas A. Arnone.
