Pence leads moment of silence for 9/11 victims

</head> ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) STORY: Republican presidential nominee Mike Pence paid tribute to the victims of 9/11 on Saturday (September 11) in his home state of Indianapolis, during a press conference for the state's Olympic athletes.

"We remember the victims, their families who grieve this day and we remember the first responders," said Pence.

"We will never forget 9/11 in Indiana or anywhere in America, nor will we ever forget the losses and the heroes of that day," Pence said, acknowledging the nine Hoosiers who died 15 years ago on September 11.

Americans remembered the victims of the Sept.

11, 2001 attacks at a series of ceremonies on Sunday, with the recital of their names, tolling church bells and a tribute in lights at the site where New York City's massive twin towers collapsed.

As classical music drifted across the 9/11 Memorial plaza in lower Manhattan, family members and first responders slowly read the names and delivered personal memories of the almost 3,000 victims killed in the worst attack on U.S. soil since the 1941 bombing of Pearl Harbor.

In Pennsylvania, mourners laid a wreath at the field where the passengers and crew of United Flight 93 crashed, and at the Pentagon outside Washington, D.C., President Barack Obama spoke at a ceremony to remember the 184 people who died there.
