Governor Guinn laid wreaths today at three state memorials in honor of the three-thousand people who died in the September 11th, 2001 terrorist attacks.
No speeches were given as the governor placed wreaths on
memorials for firefighters, law enforcement officers and veterans.
About 50 people attended the ceremonies - compared with the
one-thousand people who gathered here in 2002 to observe the first
anniversary following the attacks.
Guinn said there was no need for speeches. Instead he asked for
moments of silence and a musician played taps. He added that 9-11
was a history-changing day in America and the sacrifices of people
who died cannot be forgotten.
