BATON ROUGE - On this day, 17 years ago, the entire national changed.

Thousands of people lost their lives on September 11, 2001, when terrorists hijacked and crashed four U.S. airplanes.

American Airlines flight 11 crashed into the North Tower of the World Trade Center in New York City and United Airlines flight 175 crashed into the South Tower. American Airlines flight 77 was sent to the Pentagon in D.C.

A fourth plane, United Airlines flight 93, was heading towards the Twin Towers. Once the passengers and crew learned of the suicide attack, they retook the plane and deliberately crashed it into a field in Pennsylvania.

To remember all the people who lost their lives, there will be multiple ceremonies in the area.
