Colorado will memorialize the nearly 3,000 people who lost their lives in the 9/11 attacks, including United Flight 93 Capt. Jason Dahl of Littleton.

What's happening: Across the state, flags will be lowered to half-staff in honor of the people who died in the Sept. 11 attacks.

Friday: Lakewood will display 2,996 American flags — one for each life lost — outside Leprino Hall at the Centennial Institute. The memorial will run through Saturday.

Saturday: The 2021 Colorado 9/11 Memorial Stair Climb event will take place at Red Rocks Park and Amphitheatre. The opening ceremony begins at 8:46am, when the first plane crashed into the North Twin Tower. Event registration is full.

  • The 9/11 Heroes Run 5k will kick off at 9am at Great Lawn Park and is open to runners and walkers of all ages. Day-of registration is $40.
  • 343 firefighters will meet at 1801 California St. to honor the 343 firefighters who died on Sept. 11. The event is exclusive to firefighters.
  • 9News will air a special report called "Remember the Sky: 20 Years after 9/11" at 6pm featuring Coloradans who were on the ground in New York City.

Tampa Bay’s mysterious 9/11 link could be made public

President Biden’s order to the Justice Department and other executive branch agencies to declassify documents related to 9/11 could help solve a mystery about a Saudi family who fled a gated community in Sarasota County just before the attacks.

What’s new: The FBI’s review was due Sept. 11, and additional documents, including reports with investigative findings, are to be reviewed over the next six months with an eye for disclosure, AP reports.

  • "Information shall not remain classified if there is significant doubt about the need to maintain its classified status," the order reads.
  • Those reports could shed light on what was happening behind the gates of a Sarasota community called Prestancia in the months before the attacks.

  • Then the group will sunset.

The big picture: The foundation "will focus on initiatives and ideas that will aid underserved communities who are most impacted by climate change," an official tells Axios.
