Hendersonville, along with nation, remembers 9/11

HENDERSONVILLE, N.C. — On Sunday morning, the 15th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks, first responders, community members and locals gathered in front of the historic Henderson County Courthouse for the Day of Remembrance Service. The service began at 9 a.m. with the Pledge of Allegiance, followed by a prayer. U.S. Rep. Mark Meadows from North Carolina’s 11th congressional district joined the gathering to share his sentiment on the anniversary of one of the deadliest attacks ever on American soil. “Today should mark a renewed commitment from all of us to support our first responders.” Meadows said. The speech was followed by a moment of silence, and the playing of taps as the color guard recessed back to the fire engine from which the oversized American flag was suspended.
