Folks in Region 8 Remember 9/11

September 11, 2004--Posted at 4:30 p.m. CDT

JONESBORO --A crowd gathered on the Craighead County Courthouse lawn this morning to remember the men and women who died on September 11th.

Danny Honnoll attended Saturday's ceremony.

"Makes me think back to a short history three years ago.  It was the realization of what was happening that day that we were being tested as a nation,"said Honnoll.

Shocking images played over and over......the United States was under attack, but in a time of confusion and terror, heroes were made.

"With the firefighters going into the towers in New York, and the people who took charge of the airplane in Pennsylvania.....you know that is the ultimate patriot, "said Honnoll.

Folks listened intensely as tributes were made to the brave men and women who sacrificed their own life in an effort to save a strangers.

Three years later, the images are still fresh in our minds.

Today, folks honored those who died, and those who continue to serve in our community, and communities nationwide.

A bell rang four times to honor the four planes, and it's passengers who fell victim to one of the worst acts of terrorism ever on American soil.
