Sep 11, 2015

Gov. Greg Abbott has ordered all flags in Texas to be flown at half-staff to remember victims of the 9/11 terrorist attacks.

Events are planned across Texas to honor those killed 14 years ago Friday in the attacks in New York, Pennsylvania and Washington, D.C.

A steel sculpture in the form of a cross, taken from the rubble of the World Trade Center, goes on display at Dallas Love Field.

A recently opened fire station in Beaumont gets a new flagpole. The Greater Austin Crime Commission planned a memorial gathering.

A ceremony was scheduled at the Lincoln-Juarez Bridge in Laredo to honor the nearly 3,000 people killed by terrorists.

Texas Department of Public Safety Director Steven McCraw has urged citizens to remain vigilant and report suspicious activity to law officers.

Bells were tolling in New York City this morning as the city observed a moment of silence to observe the time the first plane struck the north tower of the World Trade Center 14 years ago.

Families of victims of the 2001 and 1993 World Trade Center attacks began reading names Friday at ground zero.

President Barack Obama and first lady Michelle Obama stepped out of the White House at 8:46 a.m. to observe a moment of silence.

Nereida Valle carried a photo of her daughter, Nereida DeJesus, who was 31 and working for Aon when she died on the 98th floor of the south tower.

Says the mother at ground zero: "I feel her every day."
