Remembering 9/11/01 this weekend...
It goes down in history right next to Pearl Harbor. The 9/11 attacks claimed nearly three thousand lives.
And just days before the 10th anniversary, the entire nation is pausing to reflect.
Here in North Central Florida, each commemoration is different, but the focus is the same.
9/11 evokes images of horror painfully seared into the minds of all those who witnessed it. But in the wake of tragedy and still years later what survived is faith, hope, love and patriotism.
