Each year, New York City and millions around the country commemorate 9/11 with mournful ceremonies, volunteering, and reading the names of those who perished.

September 11 still shapes American policy, politics, and everyday experiences in places from airports to office buildings, even if it’s less of a constant presence in the public consciousness.
