Twelve years ago today, on September 11, 2001, our nation was attacked when 19 hijackers took control of four commercial airplanes and flew them into the North and South towers of the World Trade Center, the Pentagon and a field in Shanksville, Pennsylvania. This series of four coordinated terrorist attacks resulted in the death of nearly 3,000 people and forever changed the lives of those alive to witness these tragic events.
We will never forget the victims of the September 11th attacks and will continue to honor those first responders and civilian heroes who paid the ultimate sacrifice that day.
A service in observance of the12th anniversary of September 11th will be held tonight at 7:30 p.m. at Cooper’s Pond, West Church Street and North Prospect Avenue, in Bergenfield. Police and fire departments, the Bergenfield High School Band, Boy and Girl Scouts and the VFW Honor Guard will be in attendance at the ceremony. Join us as we honor those lives lost 12 years ago.
