On Wednesday, people all around the First Coast took a moment to reflect on the tragedy in New York City 18 years ago.

We'll never forget the moment that the two towers came down in what would be known as the deadliest terrorist attack on American soil that the nation had ever seen.

For those looking for a way to honor those lost that day or simply take a moment to reflect, here are a few events that happened Wednesday morning along the First Coast that you may consider watching:
