The Southcoast Remembers 9/11

For most of us who are now over the age of 21 or so, we will never forget the horror of that Tuesday Morning, 11 years ago.    It was especially numbing for us here in Southeastern Massachusetts, as two of the ill-fated flights, American Airlines Flight 11, and United Flight 175, both departed from Logan Airport in Boston.  Then shortly after it was realized that the planes had been hijacked, fighter jets from Otis Air Base on nearby Cape Cod scrambled in the direction of New York City.   There are some special events planned for our area on the 11th anniversary of the attacks.   Battleship Cove in Fall River will commemorate the attack on the Twin Towers with a memorial service at 8:30 in the morning.

Then, the Willis Street Disabled American Veternas Post is planning to honor those who died with a ceremony at 2 p.m., outside of the post.   At 3:30, the City of New Bedford will hold a ceremony on the steps of City Hall.   The New Bedford High Marching Band will perform.   And on Tuesday Evening, teh Acusnet Fire and EMS Department will hold a brief ceremony in front of the town’s 9/11 Memorial at the Russell Street Fire Station.    If you can find the time, attending one of more of these events will be a great tribute to the memories of those lost on one of most terrible days in the history of our great country.
