Lee County-- Even with damage control from Tropical Storm Frances going on, and worries about Hurricane Ivan, Southwest Georgians haven't forgotten September 11th.
This morning, a memorial at the Lee County Transportation Department. The room was crowded with a mix of law enforcement, bus drivers, EMT's and other people who took a moment to reflect on the terrorist attacks three years ago.
"Who went through that tragedy with those nights of shedding tears, we want to keep that in our hearts and not take it for granted," said Calvin Rollins.
The memorial was brief, but the people in attendance say they are grieving along with families who lost loved ones that day.
South Georgia's hometown senator says we are more secure in many ways today than three years ago.
Senator Saxby Chambliss returned home this afternoon. Chambliss says he is reflecting on the deaths of 3,000 people on September 11, 2001, remembering that the price of freedom is not cheap.
"This is a world wide war. We are looking at terrorists attacking in Indonesia just yesterday and terrorists attacking in Russia on three separate occasions the last two weeks any number of other instances that have occurred around the world so America is not in the fight by itself and it is going to be a long and enduring war."
The senator says billions of dollars have been spent beefing up security since 9-11, including at our nation's ports and airports. But he says more still needs to be done.
