A dozen years on Americans still feel the shock, the pain, and the sadness they felt on September 11th, 2001 – when the World Trade Center came crashing to the ground as the result of the terror attacks.
Something else that still lives on is an incredible sense of determination – and brotherhood – that brought the people of the U.S. together in the wake of that terrible chapter in all our lives.
First Responders, church and community leaders, elected officials and members of the public all gathered in front of the Cherokee County Courthouse Wednesday morning in order to pay tribute to all those who perished that day, and to remember those closer to home, who are no longer with us
Centre Fire Chief Kevin Ware remembered those Cherokee County has lost.
Special guest speakers included Rich Lindsey, representing the McCord’s Fire Department – and Brother Brett Clements of New Bethel Baptist Church along with Nick Horton of the Centre Fire Department who read the poem “343”.
Following the ceremony, Commissioner Marci Foster shared her thoughts and asked everyone, when they see first responders on their way to an emergency, to remember to say a prayer.
