Today is the 11th anniversary of the September 11 terrorist attacks on our country.

Watch live as Vice President Joe Biden delivers the keynote address at the Flight 93 National Memorial in Shanksville, Pennsylvania.

The service will also include a reading of the names of the Flight 93 passengers and crew, the ringing of the Bells of Remembrance, a wreath laying and remarks from others honoring the fallen.

The service begins at 9:45 a.m., a time chosen specifically to commemorate the period during which passengers and crew tried to regain control of the flight after being hijacked by four terrorists.
