New York City became the first point of attack by terrorists eight years ago.
On that date eight years ago nearly 3,000 people died in the Twin Towers and now family and friends attended a ceremony honor those who died. Four bells rang at the beginning of four moments of silence marking the exact times jetliners hit the north and south towers and the time each tower collapsed.
A remembrance ceremony was held also at the site in western Pennsylvania where United Airlines flight 93 crashed into the ground. In Washington, President Obama honored the victims and called September 11th as a day of remembrance and service for those who died at the Pentagon, Pennsylvania and New York.
