Across the region, the state and the nation on Sunday, ceremonies are being held to commemorate the 10th anniversary of the terrorist attacks of Sept. 11, 2001.
Almost every community in Connecticut was affected by 9/11, whether it be the death of a resident in Washington, New York, or Pennsylvania; members of the community heading to New York to assist in rescue efforts, or a friend or relative enlisting in the service and heading to Iraq or Afghanistan.
We have all been touched by 9/11.
