Local ceremonies remember 9/11

Posted: Updated:

People in several metro Atlanta counties remembered the 9/11 terror attacks on Tuesday.

Milton High School was the scene of an impressive display of patriotism. Students placed 2,997 flags with the names of 9/11 victims attached to each of them.

"It's just a great way, I guess the younger generation to show that we care and we're going to do something to help remember those who have lost their lives," said Zach Bailey.

It's the fifth year the school has commemorated the anniversary of the terror attacks.

"It just represents the fact that we're not going to forget all those people, all those brave Americans who lost their lives on that tragic day and that their memory will last and it's just not going to end with the people who remember it," said Bailey.

In Fulton County, first responders gathered to dedicate the "Circle of Honor" public safety memorial in College Park, which honors law enforcement heroes who lost their lives serving their community.

"I just think this memorial for all of the fire, police and public safety folks, it's a great honor that's being paid to us today," said Chief Larry Few of the Fulton County Fire Department.

On the campus of Georgia Tech, close to three thousand flags were spread throughout the campus to remember each of the 9/11 victims.

"It's deeply moving putting the individual flags up when you think about the fact that each flag represents a person that died on 9/11,' said Andrew Mullins, chairman of the Georgia Tech College Republicans.

The placement of those flags at Georgia Tech accompanied a remembrance ceremony that's held on each anniversary of the 9/11 anniversary.
