Written by

ELLSWORTH - Seventeen  years gone, and the memory of the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks still paint a vivid picture in the minds of all those who experienced the day. 

 The Ellsworth Fire Department recalled those memories and honored the men and women who perished that day in a remembrance ceremony.

 

"As a nation and whole, we understand that we need to bond together, and this is what 9/11 has done," said event coordinator and Ellsworth firefighter Adam Brackett.

 

The ceremony began at 8:46 a.m. Tuesday morning, which was the exact time that American Airlines Flight 11 struck the North World Trade Tower seventeen years ago. In the hours and days that followed, nearly 3,000 people lost their lives.

 

"There's names, there's people that have not been found," said Brackett. "We can't let this be forgotten."

 

The ceremony has been going on for the last four years, and is expected to continue far into the future.
