CAMILLA, GA (WALB) - Surrounded by red,white and blue, voices sing praise of thanks as Southside Baptist Church in Camilla remembers 9-11. "We began a service called Honor our Heroes where we honor our own local first responders along with the military," said pastor, Neal Hager.
"We thank them for their service, and we are glad to be a part of the community," said Lt. Eames. Lt. Caleb Eames is a public information officer for the Marine Corp Logistics Base and was the guest speaker during this special service.
"Our first responders, our police officers and firefighters are keeping our women and children safe while we are deployed. So really they are our heroes," said Lt. Eames.
"These people, our first responders, they're the ones on the home front doing what our military are doing on foreign land," said Hager. A fact members of this congregation admit they take for granted. "Often times they are overlooked as being heroes and of course they are out here everyday to protect us and serve us and rescue us from harms way."
It was many of those first responders in New York who lost their lives helping others on September 11th. "Since that time we have not experienced a terrorist attack, and it tends to slip our minds if we don't dedicate time for it," said Lt. Eames.
And Sunday Southside Baptist Church is doing just that. "Let us not forget how our lives has changed on September 11, 2001," said Hager.
"It happened in every ones hearts and minds. Every body remembers where they were that morning. And our lives really changed that day," said Lt. Eames. As they keep theirs and America's promise to never forget.
