Local 9/11 Remembrances

BILLINGS -

Nearly 3,000 people died in the September 11th terrorist attacks 12 years ago. This day became a significant day in American history.

Community members in Laurel are remembering September 11th by honoring first responders and the victims of the attacks.

"I think it's important to remember because it was an attack on our soil and we need to maintain our unity as a country and focus past the day to day squabbles and stay united," says Corey McIlvain, Laurel Fire Department Deputy Chief.

In Billings, community members gathered at the Yellowstone County Courthouse lawn for the celebration of life. Billings Central High School choir and band participated in the ceremony, and it was an opportunity for the younger generation to come together and remember.

"Part of me wishes that I could remember more because it does affect so many people in such a strong way. But it does, the affect does carry on to this generation in a different way but still a very strong way," says Claire Stephanek, a student at Billings Central High School.
