It’s been 17 years since the tragic events of September 11, 2001, but the impact and the memory of that day continue to be felt in Mississippi and across the country.

As millions looked on from the ground, the United States was attacked as terrorists carried out a plot that left thousands dead. As the hijacked planes crashed into the World Trade Center, the Pentagon, and into a field in Shanksville, Pennsylvania, families were torn apart, lives were lost, and the nation’s sense of security was shaken.

On that day, first responders ran toward the chaos and began to rescue those trapped inside the rubble, and in the process, many were lost. Today, the nation remembers all of those who were lost on that tragic day 17 years ago, and thank those who defend America’s freedoms each and every day.

Across the state of Mississippi, leaders have posted messages of commemoration as we remember the dark day in American history.
