September 11th, 2009 by flanews

The state is honoring those that served and those that died eight years ago today in the 911 attacks.

Governor Charlie Crist order flag to half-mast. Chief Financial Officer Alex Sink, who also serves as the states Fire Marshall hosted a ceremony in the Capitol Courtyard. Police officers and firefighters honored the fallen. Sink says its important to remember those who risked their lives to save others.

It was the first time we have ever know or seen our country under attack on our soil. Its important to remember the people that lost their lives but also all the many emergency personnel who were so brave and so courageous that day and swarmed those towers to try and help people escape successfully and so many did, said Sink.

A bagpipe player played Amazing Grace after a moment of silence to remember the tragedy. A firefighter rung a bell in honor of all the firefighters who lost their lives.
