Gainesville to pause on 9/11

By Derreck Booth Anchor/reporter
GAINESVILLE - Gainesville officials will pause on Tuesday to remember the victims of the terror attacks of September 11th.

Gainesville Fire Chief Jon Canada said it's part of the city's committment to never forget that day.

"We will take a moment and give that moment of silence, and we will honor those who lost their lives, honor the families who sacrificed so much through that. Our committment is to never forget that," Canada said.

Canada said the simple and low-key ceremony will include prayer, the timeline of the collapse of the towers in New York and the tolling of the bell for the fallen firefighters and law enforcement.

Canada and Gainesville Police Chief Brian Kelly are both scheduled to speak at the morning ceremony.

"The public is invited. It's a short time, but it's a time that we want to set aside on September the 11th just to take time to honor and remember them."
