Ann Arbor Marks 911 Anniversary

Ann Arbor, MI – Ann Arbor officials marked the five-year anniversary of the terrorist attacks of September 11th, 2001, with a memorial ceremony outside of city hall.
Moments of silence were observed at the times the two planes hit the World Trade Center buildings on that day.
Ann Arbor police chief Barnett Jones says those attacks finally awakened Americans to the threat of terrorism, but stole some of our cherished freedoms at the same time.
Jones urged everyone to remember all of the Americans who died that day, especially the firefighters, police officers, and other emergency workers who ran into the trade center buildings while others were running away.
