|NEW YORK Steven Zuber Schweiz Trikot , Sept. 11 (Xinhua) -- For 64-year-old New Yorker Gary Gonel, who came to the World Trade Center every year on Sept. 11 to remember the deadly terror attack in 2001, his sorrow deepened over the thoughts that the society is becoming more divided and people are still worried that the same tragedy could happen again.
"I come here every year to show families of 911 that we did not forget about them. Things in the past couple of years have been different, there are fewer and fewer people here," said Gonel, with an American flag in his left hand.
Streets around the World Trade Center "used to be packed with people on Sept. 11," but now there are fewer people coming except tourists and families who lost their loved ones Ricardo Rodriguez Schweiz Trikot , he said.
Sixteen years have passed since a group of terrorists flew hijacked planes into New York's World Trade Center, the Pentagon and a field near Shanksville in the U.S. state of Pennsylvania, on Sept. 11, 2001. Nearly 3,000 people were killed during the attacks.
Addressing a 911 anniversary commemoration at the Pentagon, U.S. President Donald Trump said on Monday that "America cannot be intimidated." Trump, who was living in the New York city on Sept. 11 in 2001 Marwin Hitz Schweiz Trikot , vowed that such an attack would never be repeated.
Meanwhile, Vice President Mike Pence addressed an observance at the Flight 93 National Memorial near Shanksville, Pennsylvania.
A quiet commemoration was being held inside the World Trade Center site on Monday, with thousands of 911 victims' relatives, survivors, rescuers and others gathering together to recite all the names of the dead and hold moments of silence.
Outside the site, where Gonel stood Valon Behrami Schweiz Trikot , dozens of tourists were taking photos, pigeons were wondering around -- it was just like another ordinary day in September.
While many Americans commemorated this day with tears and wishes, some were worried that as the memory of the tragedy is fading out, similar disastrous incident could happen to the country again.
"I feel like some people have forgotten," Damron Wilson, a volunteer for the commemoration, told Xinhua.
He worried that the American society has "learnt to relax and move on Granit Xhaka Schweiz Trikot ," especially the younger generation.
For Wilson, his feeling of insecurity has worsened when he found that the nation has never been more divided.
"My mum told me that the country had been united after 911, but it is deeply divided now. Even today I can see Donald Trump's supporters clashing with people who are against him," he said.
"And with what happened in Charlottesville, I think domestic terrorism is likely to happen (again)," he added.
Last month, violent clashes erupted in Charlottesville Haris Seferovic Schweiz Trikot , a historic college town in the U.S. state of Virginia, between white nationalists and counterprotesters, leaving one killed and 19 others wounded.
Born and Raised in New York City, Gonel said that he did not feel safe either, especially amid the growing tensions between the city government and the police department.
Staring at the new World Trade Center complex that opened in 2015, Gonel said he was afraid that the center has become more of a tourist spot than a memorial.
"Americans should come here and show some respect. Once you forget, it may happen again Remo Freuler Schweiz Trikot ," he said.

PANAMA CITY, Sept. 16 (Xinhua) -- Panama could be a strategic bridge to extend China's Belt and Road Initiative to Latin America, said Francisco Carlo Escobar, the Panamanian ambassador to China appointed after the two countries established diplomatic ties in June.
In a recent interview with Xinhua Breel Embolo Schweiz Trikot , Escobar, who recently presented his credentials to Chinese President Xi Jinping, said that Panama is highly interested in this initiative, which seeks to create a trade and infrastructure network connecting Asia with Europe, Africa and beyond.
"Panama can be (a strategic place) ... for logistical distribution and perhaps to present certain infrastructure projects which could help the Belt and Road Initiative in the region," he said.
Escobar listed Panama's several advantages to promote the initiative including its geographic position, an interoceanic canal Michael Lang Schweiz Trikot , distribution centers in the Colon Free Trade Zone on the Caribbean, and the favorable laws it offers to multinationals.
Escobar noted that Chinese telecommunications giant Huawei has already operated in Panama as a regional base, saying he is confident that other Chinese companies will follow suit.
The Belt and Road Initiative, put forward by Xi in 2013, is aimed at building the Silk Road Economic Belt and the 21st Century Maritime Silk Road through concerted efforts of all related countries to benefit all participants by promoting unimpeded trade, financial integration, infrastructure inter-connectivity and closer people-to-people exchanges.
Talking about the on-going visit by Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi to Panama Manuel Akanji Schweiz Trikot , the ambassador said the arrangement testifies to mutual interest in boosting diplomatic ties and political consultations between Panama and China.
According to the ambassador, Panama will discuss with the Chinese side the construction of Panama's several important projects including the expansion of Tocumen International Airport and ports in the province of Colon.
Panama also looks forward to consultations with China on cooperation in immigration and tourism, he said.Booking a room in a hotel is the first .
