There will be no political speak at this year's commemoration ceremony of the 2001 terror attacks, according to CNN.
According to the president of the National September 11 Memorial and Museum, Joe Daniels, the foundation has barred political speakers from the 11th anniversary ceremony because the foundation "is focused on honoring the victims and their families in a way free of politics, and this ensures that continues."
The reading of victims' names by family members will be "the exclusive focus of the program" during this year's ceremony.
"It individualizes the masses of people who were killed. Those people were individuals who had individual lives," said Charles G. Wolf, who lost his wife, Katherine, who had been working at the World Trade Center that day, to CNN.
More than a million people have visited the memorial since its opening on September 11, 2011.
Last year, President Obama spoke at the 10th anniversary ceremony.
