Boston remembers 9/11, 14 years later

Printed from:

Boston officials and organizations are remembering the 14th anniversary of the 9/11 terrorist attacks throughout the weekend.

State officials including Mayor Marty Walsh and Gov. Charlie Baker attended a wreath-laying ceremony in the Boston Public Garden on Friday morning, after which officials conducted a flag-lowering, a reading of the victims’ names at the State House, and a Sweeney Award for Civilian Bravery ceremony.

At noon, Walsh was scheduled to speak at the Massachusetts Military Heroes Fund 9/11 service project.

The two planes that struck the twin towers on Sept. 11, 2001, originated at the Boston Logan International Airport.

At 8:46 a.m. Friday, the moment that Boston-based American Airlines Flight 11 crashed into the North Tower at the World Trade Center, Boston Logan International Airport officials held a moment of silence.

An honor guard will be present all day in Terminal B, the terminal from which Flight 11 took off.

This afternoon:

Saturday, Sept. 12, the annual Run for the Fallen 5K will take place in Dedham. Registration is still open.
