MT. Juliet, Tennessee (WKRN) -Mountain City Juliet held a wreath ceremony on September 11, 2001 to commemorate and honor the injured and murderers of the 9/11 terrorist attacks in New York.
At the ceremony, members of the Juliet Mountain Police Station, Juliet Mountain Fire Department, and members of the local army dedicated a wreath in front of the Town Center Clock Tower at 9:30 am. This time was specially chosen to coincide with the moment after the last tower collapsed at 10:28 EST after the last silent prayer.
“It was one of the darkest days in the history of our country, and it’s important to remember those who died and were injured, and that continues today. We are all in debt because we are suffering from the health effects of rescue operations, “said John Kennedy, who attended the ceremony with his wife Beth.
The three garlands represent the fallen police officers, firefighters, troops, and civilians killed in 9/11.
The ceremony served as a solemn memory as members of the community took a moment of personal reflection. People attending the event had the opportunity to place wreaths and bouquets next to the wreaths to honor the many dead and injured civilians.
“I remember when the attack happened in 2001. It’s never forgotten. We are all very much to the victims of the attack and those who gave their lives to save those who died in the attack. I would like to express my respect, “said Kennedy.
According to Juliet police, the flowers remain throughout the weekend while the clock tower is lit in red, white and blue.
