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 21st anniversary, New Jerseyans will come together to honor and remember the lives we lost on 9/11.

Scroll below to see just a few of the 21st Anniversary 9/11 remembrance ceremonies taking place across the state on Sunday, September 11.
