Valdosta Remembers 9/11

September 11, 2006

Valdosta - Dozens of firefighters and many Valdosta citizens gathered at the City Hall Annex this morning to remember 9/11 victims.

Valdosta Mayor John Fretti says even though it's been five years since the attacks, he believes America is being rebuilt stronger than ever. "Today we stand even taller, we stand taller holding hands with each other with resolve that you will never chip away at the heart and soul of America."

The event included a presentation of colors by the Valdosta Fire Department, a rendition of the "National Anthem" and a moment of silence for anyone who's life was affected by the 9/11 attack.
