Today marks the 11th anniversary of the September 11, 2001 attacks on the World Trade Center and Pentagon.

According to the Christian Science Monitor, both President Obama and Mitt Romney will suspend negative ads and overtly political appearances in observance of this very important day.

The Obamas have a few activities planned, including a moment of silence on the South Lawn of the White House and a visit to the Pentagon.

From the Grio:

“With three bell tolls and a bugler playing taps, the White House observance marks the 11th anniversary of the suicide hijackings that struck New York and the Pentagon and downed a plane in Pennsylvania, leaving nearly 3,000 dead.

Obama and the first lady also planned to attend an observance ceremony at the Pentagon later Tuesday morning.

In the afternoon, the president was scheduled to visit wounded soldiers and their families at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center.”
