Video: Clark Atlanta University Remembers September 11th and its Civil Servants

Students of Clark Atlanta University gather to remember 9/11 and its heroes.

On September 11th, 2012 exactly 11 years since terrorists flew planes into the Twin Towers in New York City, students gathered on campus to remember the fallen and to vow to "never forget."

In a small ceremony, students and faculty prayed together and showed their support for grieving families and even for the local first responders in the area that risk their lives everyday.

Ms. Jackson, who is now a student at Clark, took to the microphone and shared how 11 years ago she was just a small girl who watched with horror as the planes hit the towers and the sadness she felt after realizing friends and family members had passed away in the attack.

The ceremony ended with a simple request and gesture.  Those in attendance were asked to come to the stage and greet CAU's police officers and to show their appreciation for the hard and dangerous work they do everyday.

We Will Never Forget.

I also respect all the groups that held a 9/11 event today. The one at Clark Atlanta Univ. was just 1 of 2 that I was able to attend, and thoroughly enjoyed them both. They were many more, so if anyone has pictures from other events, please share them with Patch readers. #Remember911
