SHSU's Bearkat Plaza was filled with members of the Bearkat and Huntsville communities who gathered Friday morning to remember the lives lost on Sept. 11, 2001, and give thanks to the armed forces fighting overseas. The commemoration event included performances by the SHSU band, a welcome and recognitions by university President Dana Gibson, the presentation of colors by the SHSU Army ROTC, and a city perspective by Huntsville Mayor J Turner.
In addition, cannon shots were fired at the times when the World Trade Center Towers were hit (8:46 and 9:01 a.m., respectively), when the Pentagon was hit (9:45 a.m.), when the first tower fell (9:59 a.m.), when the airplane crashed in Pennsylvania (10:03 a.m.), and when the second tower fell (10:28 a.m.).
