President Trump will visit the Flight 93 National Memorial in Shanksville, Pennsylvania today on this 17th anniversary of the 9/11 terrorist attacks. First Lady Melania Trump is joining the president at the ceremony.

Architect Paul Murdoch says the chimes sounds are "meant to subtle and intimate" for visitors to have a personal experience.

 

The 40 chimes symbolize the voices of the passengers and crew of Flight 93, who stormed the cockpit that was taken over by hijackers in 2001.

The designer of the chimes project was Samuel Pellman, a music professor at Hamilton College in Oneida County, New York.
