Siouxlanders flew the red, white and blue proudly Tuesday night, to pay tribute to those who lost their lives on 9/11.

American flags flew over a small crowd gathered in South Sioux City, Nebraska.

The group met at West 7th and Dakota Avenue for "A Night of Remembrance."

Although far away from the terrorist attacks of eleven years ago, it's something that some will never forget.

David Rasmussen of Homer, Neb. said, "It's sad to say that it takes an event like this to bring America closer together. But that proves what our country is made of. We do come together and we are one when we need to be."

David Gerkin of South Sioux City, Neb. added, "I'm very proud to be an American and to reflect back on 9/11 and to remember those who were here and those that have fallen."

Nearly 3,000 Americans lost their lives on 9/11 when terrorists hijacked planes and flew them into the Twin Towers in New York City and the Pentagon.  A fourth plane crashed in a Pennsylvania field after passengers revolted against the hijackers.
