Candlelight marks "Night of Remembrance" on 12th anniversary of terror attacks

Posted:
SOUTH SIOUX CITY, Neb. (KTIV) -

On the night of September 11th, candles burned from coast to coast to remember the victims of the terrorist attacks. Wednesday night, on the 12th anniversary of 9/11, was no different in South Sioux City, Nebraska.

Dozens lined the "Avenue of Flags" , with candles in their hands, to honor the victims. Some of them were first responders, like the ones in Dakota County, who put their lives on the line every day.

That's something, organizers say, we should never forget. Virgil Kleve, Hubbard-Jackson American Legion Post Commander said, "These folks put their lives on the line. They do it without regard for their own health and safety. They do it without regard to knowing the people that they're saving lives from. They can die at any moment. They're willing to risk their lives to protect us, to serve us. We need to be grateful and honor them."

The event also included a 21-gun salute, and the ceremonial playing of "Taps."
