MARSHALL - Marshall hosting 9/11 memorial prayer service in honor and memory of the firefighters, first responders, members of law enforcement, members of the military, and civilians who lost their lives as a result of the terrorist attacks on the United States of America on September 11, 2001.
The prayer service will take on the west side of the Courthouse Square in downtown Marshall on Saturday at 9:00 a.m.
Various departments will bring fire trucks and other vehicles representing their departments to the ceremony.
The prayer service is coordinated each year by the Harrison County Firefighters Association.
"We invite the public to join us as we, as a community, come together not only to remember and pay tribute to those who lost their lives on that tragic day 15 years ago, but also to honor and remember the firefighters, first responders, members of law enforcement, and others whose heroic efforts and sacrifices resulted in so many lives being saved that day as well," the group said.
"It's hard to believe it's been 15 years since that tragic day. But, we, as a community and nation, must never forget the many sacrifices made by so many brave people that day and in the days, months, and years following," Christina Anderson, member of the Harrison County Firefighters Association 9/11 prayer service committee, said. "We must also never forget the courage, dedication, and sacrifice made by the firefighters, first responders, and members of law enforcement in our city, county, and country who put their lives on the line every single day to keep our communities safe. We appreciate their selfless work so very much, we appreciate the sacrifice of their families, and we pray for their ongoing safety."
