BALTIMORE - Today is the day we take a moment out of our busy lives to pause and pay respects to those who died on September 11th.
Families of the victims in the world trade center towers made their way to ground zero on the eve of the anniversary.
During this somber time we've learned two pieces of good news for the survivors.
A financial agreement will allow the 9-11 memorial to go forward, and the government will cover patients whose cancer was caused by the debris at ground zero.
About 50 new cancers will be covered by a two billion dollar settlement fund set up for victim compensation.
