September 11, 2007

Valdosta - A wreath was placed outside the courthouse in Valdosta on this dark day in American history.

Flags flew at half staff.

City and county leaders say although the tragedy occurred six years ago, it's important for the country to look back and honor those who lost their lives and the emergency workers who continue to work to save lives every day.

"I think it's great that our political figures and Americans will take a moment of silence on 9/11 to remember what those people did and the sacrifice all our emergency service people. When they leave in the morning for that 24 hour shift, they know they may not come home," says Chief Jim Fielding of Lowndes County Fire and Rescue.

They hope the yearly ceremonies, although brief, will help the community remember that September 11 will never just be another day.
