Eleven years ago today nearly 3,000 people lost their lives on 9/11. A tragedy that still hits close to home for many community members.
"It still has a strong effect on me," said LC Valley resident Alex Smith. "A saddening in my heart, heavy."
"It makes me feel emotional for the loss," said LC Valley resident Jennifer Norberg. "The senseless loss of so many lives."
Though it's been more than a decade since the September 11th attacks upon the United States in New York, Washington DC, and Pennsylvania. Some Valley residents remain fearful for their safety.
"Things happen and can still continue to happen in our country," said LC Valley resident Judy Lundgren. "We just need to be careful and hopefully our leaders will keep on top of things."
"Technology being what it is, bombs are getting more smaller and more deadlier," said Smith. "It's a lot easier to get by everything else."
Like many others, LC Valley resident Jennifer Norberg said she remembers like it was yesterday, watching the nation under attack through her television screen on September 11th, 2001.
"At first I didn't realize it was a big plane," said Norberg. "I thought it was a small plane. While we were watching, the second plane flew into the second building. It was pretty devastating to watch that."
