9/11 Memorial opens up to public

The 9/11 Memorial is now opened to the public, one day after the nation marked the 10th anniversary of the terrorist attacks.

Ceremonies were held in New York City, Washington, D.C, and in Shanksville, Pa., where the 40 people who died aboard United Airlines Flight 93 were remembered as heroes.

Authorities expect 7,000 visitors to come to the 9/11 Memorial today from 46 states and 33 countries. In order to visit, people need to reserve a ticket online. As of this morning, the first available date was on Oct. 5.
