ST. CLOUD – City officials and community members gathered Friday morning in remembrance of the September 11th attacks 14 years ago.

Area city leaders, police and fire department representatives, area veterans and the National Guard all took part in the ceremony. St. Cloud Fire Chief Dean Wrobbel spoke to remember those who lost their lives that tragic day.

“2,996 people lost their lives including 343 firefighters and 72 law enforcement officers. We stand together today to remember them and all military personnel throughout the world who lost their lives.”

St. Cloud Police Chief Blair Anderson, St. Cloud Mayor Dave Kleis and Bishop Donald Kettler also spoke during the ceremony.

“We will not forget, we will not live in fear, we will not forsake our values and we will not let a group a terrorists fueled by hatred to overwhelm the loving spirit in our hearts,” Anderson says.

The ceremony ended with a wreath ceremony, ringing of the bell, rifle salute and playing of taps.
