Tazewell, Va (WVVA) - Firemen, police officers, and local residents gathered in Tazewell to remember those lost in the 9/11 attacks, not just as public servants and civilians, but as Americans.

The ceremony included music, including the singing of the Star Spangled Banner, and prayer, not just for those lost, but for the heroes who simply do their job to protect and serve.

"I have failed to recognize the number of first responders that have lost their lives on that day. It blesses my heart to see each of you here tonight. We thank God for you."

Local first responders say their colleagues who answered the call 11 years ago in New York, in Washington and in Pennsylvania, were nothing sort of heroic.

"Our brothers and sisters did more than their job that day."

Those in attendance were grateful for the acknowledgement and prayers.

"We needed this every year, I don't think they've done anything last year and we was sort of upset over that, cause it just needs to be done."

Although Allison hopes to see events like this on future anniversaries of 9/11, he also hopes people remember this day, every day.

"I believe this is going to try to be an annual thing. I believe everybody needs to take just a few minutes out of their day, just to stop and remember."
