Stamford Government Center Ceremonies Remembering 9/11: Part I

On 9/11, Stamford commemorated the tragic events that occurred 10 years ago with a series of speeches and the dedication of a sculpture at the Government Center.

The ceremony began at 8:30 AM  with a solemn march of the Connecticut Firefighters playing their bagpipes. Here is a video clip.

Mayor Pavia was one of several excellent speakers. He reminded us that despite the sadness and grief, the remembrances and services are a 'celebration' of our spirit as a people, our strength as a country and our determination never to forget those perished in their line of duty, doing what they knew how to do best.

Here is a video clip of his speech. 

Part II will continue on my next post with a video of the unveiling of a sculpture designed from a fragment from the World Trade Center site.
