WASHINGTON -- Members of the House and Senate have filled the steps on the east front of the Capitol to honor victims of the Sept. 11, 2001 attacks.

On the 11th anniversary of 9/11, Speaker John Boehner, becoming emotional with his voice breaking as he spoke, said Tuesday that greater good has come from Americans standing together shoulder-to-shoulder.

House Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi said that in the years to come, time will continue to tell the true story of 9/11: how the 9/11 families turned a national tragedy into a time of unity and how the nation came together.

Senate Republican leader Mitch McConnell said the greatness of America was revealed after the attacks, and Senate Democratic leader Harry Reid said the attacks failed to break the nation's will.
