The 9/11 Memorial will mark the 20th anniversary of the 1993 World Trade Center bombing in a number of ways on Feb. 26.

A ceremony will be held on the memorial plaza on the day of the anniversary, adjacent to the north reflecting pool. A moment of silence will be held at 12:18 p.m., followed by the reading of the names of the six victims.

The terrorist attack killed six people and injured hundreds. The victims were John DiGiovanni, Robert Kirkpatrick, Stephen Knapp, William Macko, Wilfredo Mercado and Monica Rodriguez Smith, who was pregnant.

Follow the 9/11 Memorial online on Twitter, Facebook and Google + to honor the victims throughout the day, and see photos from the ceremony.   9/11 Memorial President Joseph Daniels (@JoeCDaniels) will also share his thoughts during the day on twitter.
