On Friday, September 11th 2009, Lansing police officers and firefighters plan to hold a service remembering all those who lost their lives eight years ago. The ceremony will begin at 10 a.m., around the same time the first tower, which was the South Tower, crumbled to the ground. “It’s just a remembrance of those who sacrificed their lives in the line of duty, as well as the citizens who died,” said Lansing fire Lt. Mike Hamel. There is also another ceremony being held at the capitol building at 11 a.m on the east steps. At this ceremony, volunteers are to read off all the 2,7000 names of the victims.
