Gone, but not forgotten.
On September 11, 2001, thousands of people lost their lives when multiple terrorist attacks occurred.
Citizens across the nation remembered the individuals on Tuesday.
In Woodbridge, the Board of County Supervisors (BOCS) hosted a 9/11 ceremony.
“As we stand here together today, we stood together on September the 11th as we felt the shock, the horror, the pain of what was happening to our brothers and sisters in New York, in Pennsylvania and in Arlington — felt the shock, the horror and the pain of what was happening to our country,” Board of County Supervisors (BOCS) Chairman-At-Large Corey Stewart said.
The ceremony was held at the Liberty Memorial, which is located between the McCoart Administration Building and the Prince William Parkway.
The impact of the 9/11 terrorist attacks was seen locally.
Twenty-two Prince William County residents died.
“To remember these local heroes, the community came together to build this memorial — a place where we could honor and remember those lost and hopefully find some peace,” Stewart said. “We built this memorial to remind us what occurred on September 11.”
