9/11 anniversary: America remembers lives lost 14 years after

Bells are tolling and tears are flowing as the the United States marks a dark day in sorrowful, yet hopeful ceremonies.

Fourteen years ago Friday, terrorists hijacked four passenger planes and rammed two into New York City’s World Trade Center and a third one into the Pentagon outside Washington.

A fourth jetliner crash-landed on an empty field in Pennsylvania.

By the time the carnage was over, the hijackers had killed 2,977 people in the deadliest terrorist attack on American soil.

People, buildings and planes fell from the sky. Terrified strangers became friends as Americans united on a day that changed the world forever.

On Friday, a resilient nation looks to the future while remembering the past.
