Small group gathers at 9/11 memorial to remember attack and response as Hurricane Florence takes aim

Lexington, SC (Paul Kirby) Even though many of the individuals that would normally be in attendance on September 11th at Lexington County’s 9/11 Memorial were tied up planning the county’s response to Hurricane Florence, there was still a small ceremony held to remember those that were claimed by the most heinous act ever to occur on American soil. Those who gathered were led by Lexington Police Chief Terrance Green. The small ceremony that often features inspiring music, speakers, and a large crowd from every first response agency in the county, was no less moving because of the size of the crowd in attendance. The group stood beside the monument in memory as Lexington Police Department Chaplain Mike McCormick lead the group in a moment of silence, reflection and prayer.

Officers from the Lexington Police Department, Town of Lexington employees, and a small group of others gathered at the East Main Street location adjacent to the county’s Judicial Center for the small ceremony. Even as the numbers that normally attend annually were down due to the storm, the gathering proved that the people of Lexington County and the men and women who serve us, along with the rest of the nation, will never forget.
