Police, fire departments take part in ceremony to remember 9/11


TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (WTWO/WAWV) – People in the Wabash Valley are joining those around the country in marking the somber 18th anniversary of the September 11 terrorist attacks.

A special ceremony took place at Indiana State University on Wednesday.

Flags were on display on campus for each of the 2,977 lives lost.

Members of local emergency agencies rang a bell to signify the moment of each plane crash and the moments of each tower collapse.

“We have those who honor us, but I think for the most part for the rest of us it’s kind of a day of remembrance,” says Sgt. Jacqueline Smith with ISU Police. “We all remember where we were. Just think about where you were at that time, but a lot of students here weren’t even born yet, so it’s kind of a history lesson for them.”

Local fire departments and local police agencies took part in this ceremony.
