Morris County September 11th Remembrance Service & Candlelight Vigil, September 8, 2013

On Sunday evening, Sept. 8, I attended the Morris County September 11th Remembrance Service and Candlelight Vigil to honor and remember those lost on September 11, 2011. It was a beautiful service with representatives from Morris County Fire Departments and Emergency Management Services, guest speaker Edward Dickson, Director of NJ Office of Homeland Security and Preparedness, various elected officials, and the Morris Choral Society.

Below are photos from the year I participated in the Morris County 9/11 Memorial Service with my fellow members of VFW Post #2833 and its Ladies Auxiliary. I'm very grateful to have this beautiful memorial here in Morris County in tribute to those who lost their lives on 9/11. The Morris County Memorial is made of three steel beams from the World Trade Center; pieces of United Airlines Flight #93 that slammed into a field in Shanksville, Pennsylvania; and soil from the grounds of the Pentagon where American Airlines Flight 77 crashed. The memorial's located on West Hanover Avenue, Parsippany across from Morris View Healthcare Center and next to the Morris County Public Safety Training Academy
