Somber Ceremonies Observe Another Sept. 11 Anniversary05:30

This article is more than 6 years old.

There are ceremonies today in Shanksville, Pennsylvania, the Pentagon and New York City, places forever scarred by what happened 13 years ago today.

The ceremony in New York is being held at the National September 11 Memorial And Museum, where the names of the 2,983 people killed on September 11, 2001 will be read.

The ceremony will pause at six moments, twice to mark the time the two planes hit the World Trade Center towers, twice to mark the moment the two towers crashed and then once each to remember when a plane hit the Pentagon and the final plane that crashed on a farm in Pennsylvania.

Stephen Nessen, a reporter for WNYC, joins Here & Now's Robin Young to discuss how the city is commemorating the 13th anniversary of September 11.
