9/11 Memorial Services held across Central Georgia
Many of us remember exactly where we were and what we were doing when we first received word that America was under attack.
Tuesday, thousands of memorial services were held across the nation to make sure we never forget that faithful day.
A service was held at the Public Safety Memorial Site at the corner of Mulberry and Second Street at 9:58 a.m., the exact time the first tower fell.
A wreath was presented by Mayor Robert Reichert and Bibb County Commission Chairman Sam Hart.
Macon Police Chief Thomas Burns, Macon-Bibb Fire Chief Marvin Riggins, and Bibb County Sheriff Jerry Modena placed a single white rose at the foot of their respective memorials.
Meanwhile in Perry at Rozar Park, Lieutenant Governor Casey Cagle took part in a memorial luncheon James E. Worrall Community Center.
The event commemorated all civil workers for their service and dedication to their jobs. While memorial services in larger cities get a lot of attention, Cagle said it's important not to forget about officers and first responders in smaller communities.
"We are a safer people, we are a safer state, we are a safer community because of their willingness to serve," he said.
Cagle also attended a prayer breakfast in Hall County before coming to Perry and another service in Harris County after leaving Perry.
