Commemorating 9/11

Monday, 10 September 2018

If you are looking for a quiet, symbolic way to commemorate 9/11, then go to the lawn of the City County Building at 400 Main Street Tuesday morning.  There will be a short ceremony as the bells of First Baptist Church will toll at 8:46 a.m. to mark the time hijackers crashed American Airlines Flight 11 into the North Tower of the World Trade Center.  Retired KPD officer and current KPD Chaplain Gerald King will lead a prayer, followed by another tolling of the bells at 9:03 a.m., the time hijackers crashed United Airlines Flight 175 into the South Tower.

Ceremony participants will include relatives of Knoxville residents who died in the attacks.  A wreath will lie at the base of the memorial, a black granite obelisk made by Randy Vaden and Installed in 2003.
