Today is the 22nd anniversary of 9/11 when terrorists hijacked 4 planes and hundreds of lives were lost.

Today (Monday) marks the 22nd anniversary of the 9/11 attacks on our country.

There will be many events and ways to remember the families who were affected the most.

The commemoration ceremony is being held at 8:30am ET at the 9/11 Memorial where family members will read the names of those who were lost. Throughout the ceremony, they will observe six moments of silence, acknowledging when each of the World Trade Center towers was struck and fell, the times of the attack on the Pentagon, and the crash of Flight 93. The Tribute in Light will take place from dusk till dawn on the night of September 11. The commemorative public art installation was first presented six months after 9/11 and now takes place every year. The tribute honors those who were lost while celebrating the unbreakable spirit of New York.

- Scouts from across the state will stand in solidarity with those lost, and those who worked to save as many lives as they could that day.  In Grand Rapids, they are gathered at Gerald R. Ford Presidential Museum and will stand in salute of our nation's flag from 7 a.m. until 8:00 p.m. The public is welcome to join the 9/11 Community Day of Remembrance and Scout Salute.

This and coinciding events are often attended by military members and first responders throughout the day.
