The Michigan House of Representatives hosted a ceremony on September 8, honoring first responders and Michigan natives lost in the terrorist attacks on Sept. 11, 2001. State Rep. Peter MacGregor attended the event with Cannon Township Fire Chief Jim Morris.

“It was a privilege to have Chief Morris on the House floor with me today as we honored first responders and remembered the tragedy that struck our nation on September 11, 2001,” said MacGregor, R-Rockford. “On the 10th anniversary of this attack on our nation, we must continue to remember those who gave their lives to protect us and who risk their lives for our safety and security every day.”

Following the presentation of the colors by a Michigan State Police Honor Guard, World Trade Center survivor Patrick Anderson gave the keynote address. Representatives of districts that lost residents in the attacks read the names of those victims.

The Michigan House plans to hold an annual event to honor first responders and the victims of September 11.
