Ceremonies Honor Sept. 11 Victims

Hundreds gather in New York, at the Pentagon and in Shanksville, Pa., to pay tribute to those killed in the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks two years ago. At Ground Zero in Manhattan, a choir sings the Star-Spangled Banner and children of the victims read the names of their loved ones. Hear NPR's Eric Westervelt, Somerset County, Pa., Commissioner Jim Marker and NPR's Nancy Solomon.
