County to Honor and Respect 9/11 on 18th Anniversary

County officials will pay honor and respect to those who lost their lives in the terror attacks on September 11, 2001.

Caldwell County Judge/Executive Larry Curling states that he will ring the bell at the courthouse nine times beginning at 11 Wednesday morning. He adds that it is his hope to remind residents of those whose lives were forever changed 18 years ago when four planes collided with the North and South Towers of the World Trade Center in New York City, the Pentagon, and a field in Pennsylvania.

The attack, which killed 2,977 people and injured over 6,000 others, is one of the deadliest terror attacks in human history.

Judge Curling expresses that he and other county officials will strive to never forget that fateful day and encourages all citizens to take a moment of silence as he rings the bell Wednesday morning.
