In remembrance and tribute today, events will be held around the country to mark 18 years since the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center. The nearly 3,000 victims of the attacks and the first responders who have lost their lives since will be honored.
Here are some ways you can participate here in San Diego.
