9/11 events are well worth attention and attendance

Last year’s 15th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks on our country and way of life brought the sort of perspective of how quickly time seems to go by. 

There was much publicity to illustrate how we must never forget after the 15 years. 

We’re very happy to see that two events in Willows this year will help mark the 16th anniversary on Monday.

As today’s lead story by Kayla Webster reports, Willows plans to make a day out of 9/11 remembrances. Glenn County veterans will host two memorials to commemorate the day the Twin Towers went down – Patriot Day at a local school and a candlelight vigil in the evening.

You can read more details in the rest of the story. 

We hope that as many people as possible can find the time to attend one or both of these events. 

An attendee last year was kind enough to share some photos with us, one of which we have on the front page today, again. 

The candlelight vigil is a particularly powerful community event. 

There is a powerful sense of both sorrow and gratitude – the former for all of those who were died or were injured in the attack – and the latter for those who are doing everything they can to prevent such a tragedy from happening again.
