Soldiers and civilians in the Quad Cities shared a moment of silence today to honor Americans who lost their lives on 9/11. The Rock Island Arsenal held a remembrance ceremony on the thirteenth anniversary of the attacks.

Attendees gathered around the Arsenal 9/11 Memorial, two small towers that symbolize the Twin Towers that were struck. They paid tribute to them through prayer and song.  Gerene Phillips-Harden and Evelyn Bamar, local residents, sang the National Anthem.
