Albuquerque events to remember 9/11

ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) – Tomorrow marks the 14th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks that killed thousands. Through speeches, presentations, memorial services, and events like the annual Firefighters’ Stair Climb, our city honorably remembers what happened that day.

There will be a number of ways you can pay your respects tomorrow. The Daniels Family Funeral Services has coordinated an annual tribute at Visa Verde Memorial Park, with more than 100 volunteers planting a flag for each person who perished in the attacks. The memorial service starts at 6 p.m.

The Albuquerque Fire Department has climbed the 22 stories of the Bank of Albuquerque building downtown every year in remembrance since 2003. They will be there tomorrow, climbing the stairs in honor of the brave first responders that morning.

Major Dan Pantaleo shares his personal experience with the attacks that morning, at the Pentagon. He now travels every year giving inspirational key note speeches, which will be presented tomorrow at the Daniels memorial service.
