Lubbock memorial honors lives lost to 9/11

LUBBOCK, Texas -

The Lubbock community remembered the lives lost in the 9/11 attacks with a memorial service.

The service was held outside of the Lubbock County Court House and featured key note speaker VFW Commander Benny Guerrero.

Prayer song, roll call of heroes and the fallen, and moments of silence honored first responders, veterans and civilians who lost their lives on that fateful day and those who continue to fight for our freedoms. 

"As tragic as it is, the fight still goes on," said David Turpin, Texas Army National Guard retiree. "We still have men and women serving in Afghanistan and Iraq and the terror attack that goes on today, but as American citizens, we want to remember and vow to lift each other up."

During the memorial, they also honored Welles Remy Crowther, a New York native in a red bandana who gave his final hour to save others.
