NEW YORK (ABC/WTVM) - People across the U.S. are gathering in remembrance of the 14th anniversary of the terrorist attacks of 9/11. 

Special ceremonies are being held in New York, Washington, DC and in various parts of the country at 9/11 memorials. 

Police across the nation are on high alert today as people gather to remember those lost on Sept. 11, 2001. The alert comes amid threats from "lone wolf" terrorists who are being radicalized by the terror group ISIS. 

For example, police in Florida arrested Joshua Goldberg,20, after he was online making calls for an attack similar to the Boston Marathon Bombing. He was arrested after messaging with an FBI informant posing as a radical and fellow ISIS sympathizer. Goldberg was directing the informant to build a pressure cooker bomb designed to inflict maximum damage. 

The threats come as memorial services are being held in New York at the First Responders Memorial. Also in Shanksville, PA the Flight 93 National Memorial is opening on Friday.

From all of us at News Leader 9, our thoughts are prayers are with families, survivors and victims of 9/11.
