Lost lives honored a dozen years later
The annual Patriots' Field of Flags, a 9-11 Memorial, was held on Tuesday evening as a way to honor the men and women who've given the ultimate sacrifice for our country.
Wednesday will mark 12 years since the terrorist attack that took thousands of lives, but organizers say it's important to remember these incidents no matter how much time has passed to prevent similar events in the future.
"History tends to repeat itself and if we don't remember what has happened in the past, we have a tendency to make the same mistakes and allow the same problems to exist, to happen again," said event chairman Marvin Mixon.
The ceremony memorialized the 210 men and women from Georgia who have been killed in the past twelve years during the war against terrorism and ended with a rifle salute and the playing of taps.
