It’s hard to believe it’s been 20 years since the terrorist attacks on September 11th, 2001 took place.
“It seems like it was just yesterday,” Macon-Bibb Interim Fire Chief Shane Edwards said Friday. “We still have those thoughts of how fresh it is in our minds when those planes hit those towers.” The county also paid tribute to the 32 first responders who have lost their lives in the line of duty in Macon-Bibb County.
Warren Selby with the Macon-Bibb Law Enforcement Foundation shares his reflections on the 20th anniversary of the attacks.
“We can see where we’ve been and where we’re going,” Selby said. “I think as with any ceremony like this, it keeps us remindful of those who gave the ultimate sacrifice.”
First responders and county leaders attended the ceremony.
