It's a date that changed the world, prompting the ongoing war on terror and ushering in a decade of heightened security and increasing Islamophobia around the world. The attacks on New York City's World Trade Center, the Pentagon and United Flight 93 claimed the lives of nearly 3,000 people. The effects of that day continue to play out in everything from the way people are screened at airports to the U.S. wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. Next year will mark the 10th anniversary of the attacks, by which time officials claim a memorial at Ground Zero should finally be complete.
