Hundreds of people turned out yesterday in Ft. Myer’s Centennial Park to commemorate the events of September 11th 2001. One speaker said the 9-11 terror attacks are this generation’s equivalent of December 7 1941 – Pearl Harbor – a day that will live in infamy. The United States changed forever following that attack. And Lee County Sheriff Mike Scott says it changed again on that day five years ago.
“That’s one of the difficult lessons that we learned. We learned
how vulnerable we are as a society as a country. And we’re better prepared for sure as a society as a country, although it’s a never ending battle. And when you’re fighting the element of surprise, it’s always tough.”
The event in Ft. Myers honored all the people who lost their lives on September 11 2001 – with special tribute paid to fire fighters and law enforcement officers. WGCU’s Valerie Alker has this sound portrait
