Dothan Vows to Never Forget

Dothan - Across the country it will be a full day of solemn and somber ceremonies to mark the 11th anniversary of the 9/11 terrorist attacks.

Many events are being scaled back compared to years past, but in Dothan the patriot guard riders wanted to ensure we never forget.

Tuesday morning a program was held at Veteran's Park where we heard from Dothan city and Houston County leaders and emergency officials.

They said, it is a day to honor our first responders. To honor those who risk their lives daily as public servants.

The speakers were also quick to remind us it is a day to remember the 3000 lives that were lost eleven years ago.

“It's never going to stop. We can never forget because as long as we remember the lives of those 3,000 people killed that day continue on. Their families are still important to us. We still think about them daily,” said Dothan Fire Department Captain Chris Etheredge.

We want to know where were you on September 11, 2001? How has that tragedy changed your life?
