SHANKSVILLE, Pa. (AP) — Speaking in western Pennsylvania on the anniversary of the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks, former first lady Laura Bush says "Americans have no division."

Bush, first lady Michelle Obama and hundreds of people gathered Saturday at memorial service in Shanksville for the victims of Flight 93, which crashed about 60 miles southwest of Pittsburgh.

Bush says that "in the face of terror, Americans chose to overcome evil."

A moment of silence at the service was broken with relatives reading aloud the names of the 40 passengers and crew who died and a bell tolling for each one.

Flight 93 was en route from Newark, N.J., to San Francisco on Sept. 11, 2001, when hijackers seized control. But passengers fought back and the hijackers responded by crashing the plane.
