It’s a sad day in America today, we remember September 11th as a day of tragedy and pain. September 11th marks 19 years since the deadliest terror attack our nation has ever seen. We honor those fallen in different ways.
Michigan has planned several events around Metro Detroit to honor all 9/11 victims and the first responders. Here are some of the events below:
- The annual September 11 ceremony will happen at the Michigan Fallen Heroes Memorial at 2 p.m. in Pontiac to honor the police officers and firefighters around the state who have died in the line of duty.
- The planned 9/11 ceremony has been canceled due to the pandemic in Port Huron. To replace that Port Huron Police volunteers will stand in silence at the international flag plaza from 8 until 11.
- In Clinton Township, Patriot Day will be observed at the first station on Romeo Plank Road. It’s the Clinton Township Fire Department’s 75th anniversary and the event will promote a fundraising effort to erect a statue in honor of firefighters who have died in the line of duty.
