9/11 Remembrance Ceremonies Around Our Community

On Sunday, September 11th, Senator Robach had the privilege to attend a number of September 11th remembrance ceremonies around my district to mark the 10-year anniversary of the terrorist attacks in New York City, at the Pentagon, and Shanksville, Pennsylvania. These photos come from ceremonies at Lakeshore Community Church, Our Mother of Sorrows Church, and Greece Assembly of God. It was honor to be with so many members of our Fire Departments, Police Departments, First Responders, and Emergency Medical Technicians. All of the ceremonies were extremely moving and very well done. 10 years ago, terrorists tried to divide us, but they have only made us more unified than ever. They tried to confuse us, but now we see as clear as we ever had.
