New York. The 9/11 anniversary is also being celebrated differently due to the outbreak of Coronavirus in America. The Memorial program was held in two locations in New York on Friday, one at the Memorial Plaza at the World Trade Center and the other at a nearby location. Not even the relatives of the victims were allowed to attend the Pentagon’s memorial program. By the way, people can visit the memorial built there in the evening in small groups. US President Donald Trump arrived at the ‘Flight 93 National Memorial’ in Shanxiville, Pennsylvania. Presidential candidate and Trump’s Democratic rival Joe Biden will arrive there in the afternoon.

The purpose of Trump and Biden is to join the memorial program here, but the political significance of this place also cannot be ignored. Winning in Pennsylvania means a lot to both. In 2016, Trump won from here but the margin of victory was less than one percentage point. Vice President Mike Pence will also visit Ground Zero. This year, the anniversary of 9/11 is in a very difficult situation, when the health crisis is standing in America, on the other hand there are demonstrations on racial injustice. Nevertheless, the relatives of the victims of that terrorist incident say that it is necessary to remember this day that has shaped American policy and changed attitudes about security and daily life from airports to office buildings.
