NEW YORK (AP) -- Even after a dozen years, memories of the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks are still vivid and the pain still acute for those who lost family members and friends.

At ceremonies in New York on Wednesday, relatives recited the names of the nearly 3,000 people who died when hijacked jets crashed into Manhattan's twin towers, the Pentagon and in a field near Shanksville, Pa. They also recognized the victims of the 1993 trade center bombing.

In Washington, President Barack Obama said hearts still ache for the "futures snatched away" when the terrorists struck.

Around the world, thousands of volunteers pledged to do good deeds, honoring an anniversary that was designated a National Day of Service and Remembrance in 2009.
