Sunday night, the Capitol community came together to honor our heroes. It was the 10th anniversary of the attacks on America, and hundreds gathered to pay their respects to the first responders who gave their lives while helping others on September 11, 2001. This remembrance ceremony was held outside the Old Capitol. and threatening skies cleared just as the ceremony was beginning. State historian Marshall Trimble served as emcee, and sang “God Bless the U.S.A.” Phoenix Bishop Thomas J. Olmsted offered the invocation, and remarks were given by Phoenix Fire Department Chief Bob Khan, the Arizona Police Association’s Mark Spencer, Senate President Russell Pearce and Speaker of the House Andy Tobin. Two spotlights pointed to the skies, as a tribute to the twin towers of New York City.
