Eleven Years Ago Today
Posted on: 09/11/2012
By  Mike Cullums

Eleven years ago today thousands died in the attacks on New York, Washington and the entire United States. While the number and size of annual memorial services around the nation are getting smaller after last year's tenth anniversary, nobody will forget that day or the bravery of so many first responders and ordinary citizens.
Locally, Washington State Community College is hosting a day of service and remembrance. A memorial is scheduled for 11:00 a.m. in front of the main building. Washington State students and staff are conducting a care package drive for troops still deployed in Afghanistan and elsewhere. Collection barrels are placed around campus. The drive continues through Friday.

Statewide, Governor John Kasich has ordered that flags be flown at half-staff from sunrise to sunset at Ohio's public buildings and grounds to commemorate the anniversary.
In New York, the dedication of the 9-11 Memorial will be held today at the World Trade Center complex, where the Twin Towers once stood.
