Juneau residents paused for a few minutes on Friday morning to remember those who lost their lives on Sept. 11, 2001 in New York, Washington D.C., and Pennsylvania. The 9/11 observance was held at Riverside Rotary Park in the Mendenhall Valley.
“The healing goes on, as does as the commitment to serve with integrity and compassion that honors the memory of the fallen,” Reifenstein said. “We will never forget their sacrifice.”
“We all saw through the horror of that day what it means to be human. That, our connection to one another is as close as the manifestation of kindness and selflessness within the human spirit. By celebrating those unique qualities, we triumph over intimidation and we are guided forward with the knowledge that we will prevail.”
