I can’t believe it has been 10 years since that terrible day on September 11, 2001. Everyone can remember where they were when they saw the attacks on the World Trade Center. We will never forget those who lost their lives, and the brave firefighters that risked everything to save them.
This year, The Clipper Magazine Stadium paid tribute to the 10th anniversary of that tragic day. They did so by holding numerous events throughout the day. First of these events was the National Stair Climb, where firefighters walked 110 flights of stairs in full gear to represent those who died in New York.
Other events that day included music by local performers, singing groups as well as tribute videos. All the while, everyone took time to stop and remember with a moment of silence for both Tower 1 and Tower 2. They also commemorated those who lost their lives on Flight 93 as well as the Pentagon.
People from all ages and generations came together in Lancaster this weekend to honor the memory of those we lost, and to remember how grateful we all are for our freedom. It was truly a special event and it made us all proud to be American.
