Grand Rapids Remembers 9/11 with Boy Scout Salute, ‘Never Forget’ Exhibit at Ford Museum

 

As the nation remembers the tragic events of 9/11, so does Grand Rapids.

Today marks the 13-year anniversary of the attacks on the towers of the World Trade Center in New York, Sept. 11, 2001. A hijacked plane struck The Pentagon outside Washington DC and another crashed just outside Shanksville, Pa. Almost 3,000 people lost their lives, including firefighters, rescue workers, and police officers trying to aid the victims.

Today we pledge to never forget those people and to never forget the events of that day.

A day-long Boy Scouts salute, a special remembrance program, and "9/11 Never Forget" mobile exhibit tours are taking place in at the Ford Museum in Grand Rapids today as we remember 9/11/2001.
