911 Rememberance To Honor The Fallen Slated For Mayville

“What separates us from the animals, what separates us from the chaos, is our ability to mourn people we’ve never met,” David Levithan, Love is the Higher Law.
MAYVILLE  – To honor and remember the more than 3,000 people who died during the Sept. 11, 2001 World Trade Towers attack and its aftermath, the local American Legion and the Chautauqua County Veterans Council will hold a 9/11 Remembrance Ceremony at noon, Tuesday, Sept. 11 in front of the Chautauqua County Courthouse.
The program is to honor those who were killed when members of the Islamic extremist group al-Qaeda hijacked four planes and crashed them into the World Trade Center in New York City, the Pentagon just outside of Washington, D.C., and a field in Western Pennsylvania. The short program is open to the public and will feature a few words from local dignitaries.
“This September 11th we honor and remember those whose lives were tragically cut short on that horrific day in 2001,” said Chautauqua County Executive George Borrello. “But let the remembrance of that day also serve as a reminder to every citizen of our county, and our nation, that the war on terror is not over and we must remain forever strong and diligent.”
