Sept. 11 Victims Honored At Flight 93 Memorial

SHANKSVILLE, Pa. (AP) - Families of the passengers and crew aboard United Flight 93 have been remembering their loved ones today as heroes who made history through unselfish and quick actions.
    
The family members joined nearly 200 other people in reading the names of the 33 passengers and seven crew members, as they marked the 12th anniversary of the Sept. 11 attacks. They gathered at a memorial to the victims in western Pennsylvania, where the plane went down.
    
Investigators concluded that the hijackers brought down the plane amid an uprising by the passengers. Flight 93 had been traveling from Newark, N.J., to San Francisco when it was hijacked with the likely goal of crashing it into the White House or the Capitol.
    
Recalling the actions of the passengers, Interior Secretary Sally Jewell said, "We never know when we'll be called to lay down our lives for others."
    
The memorial to the victims includes a wall of white stone, with each victim's name engraved on a separate panel.  A groundbreaking for a 6,800-square-foot visitor center was held yesterday.
