NEW YORK (AP) — Bells are tolling as New York City observes 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.”
