“We want to stand in solidarity with those who are grieving with those who are still feeling the effects of 911, whether it’s through the work that they do or the hobbies that they have and, we just want to be a show of solidarity and support,” said Sharan Knoell, Valley United Presbyterian Church
The local church provided a space for people to have a moment of silence, pay homage, or pray as a way to pay respects to those who were deeply impacted.
As churchgoers arrived or exited the church, they were asked to ring the bell in remembrance of each person who lost their life as a result of the terrorist attacks.
