A gentle breeze and temps around 78, residents and officials were a part of an on-going 9/11 healing as the fifteenth annual Patriot's Day Remembrance Ceremony took place in front of the steel beam that was once a part of the Twin Towers at the World Trade Center.

Retired U.S. Army Colonel and now Assistant to our County Mayor Jeff Davidson was the keynote speaker. He was stationed in Hawaii, which is in a time zone that is six-hours before New York. So it was the middle of the night, very early on September 11th, when his phone rang and he jumped from his bed.

Colonel Davidson noted, "I knew immediately that we had been attacked, and that our country would never be the same."
