SULLIVAN COUNTY, Ind. (WTWO/WAWV) — A tradition that began after the 9-11 terrorist attacks has now been taking place every week for the last 22 years.

The traditional ceremony took place again Monday at the Sullivan County courthouse. Every Monday morning, at 9:00 a.m., available courthouse employees and visitors gather around the rotunda.

The flag is brought out and those in attendance recite the pledge of allegiance.

Circuit court judge, Bob Hunley said it’s been a great way to continue to express patriotism throughout the years.

“I don’t think we should ever forget 9/11. I think that date probably changed our country more than anything in recent history. Everything from the way you go to courthouses, you go to federal buildings, it’s all changed since 9/11. And so we need to remember that and this is just a way we can remember,” Hunley said.

However, this particular Monday morning had extra special meaning for those saying the pledge since it is the anniversary of the 9-11 attacks.
