As the nation marked another 9/11 anniversary this weekend, Debbie Nelson was remembering the role six Vancouver mediators played in New York City’s healing process eight years ago.
“I was thinking about that the other day,” Nelson said. “We were honored to be part of it.”
Nine years ago today were the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks.
And throughout Clark County, people are remembering and honoring the nearly 3,000 people who died in New York, Virginia and Pennsylvania, through ceremonies, speeches, music and barbecues.
On Saturday, Americans will mark the ninth anniversary of the terror attacks of Sept. 11, 2001.
It’s an anniversary that has become a national holiday — not a holiday like Independence Day or Memorial Day, but a day for personal reflection and remembrance.
