Western Oregon remembers 9/11
A vigil was held in Eugene.

The one on a bike.

It's been 18 years since terrorists hijacked airlines and attacked new york city...washington d- c...and penslyvania.

And today western oregon remembers.

Kezi 9 news reporter connor mccarthy is here in studio with a look back on how people are remembering that day.

Chynna--we all remeber that day...where we were and what we were doing when we heard the news.

Some of us, like myself were a little too young to process what happened that day, but the one thing is for sure, we'll never forget.

"today we've had a national tragedy.

Two airplanes have crashed into the world trade center in an apparent attack on our country.... it was shock and horror for everyone.

It's just something at my age at the time.

None of us had experience anything like that at the time.

Thats whats what surprised me is how easily it would seem to collapse.

You know i remember world war two, i remember pearl harbor, i remember kennedy.

Its trammatic with things that happen in our lives.

On 9/12 america came together like never before.

America came togetjer.

It didn't matter what your race was, what your religion was, what your ethnicity was, it didn't matter what your background was didn't matter what you ate for lunch or dinner, where you ate it at.

It didn't matter how much money youd make or didn't make, where you live or what you didn't have.

Everyone was one again and thats what needs to remain.

Nats" nearly 3,000 people lost thier lives that september morning with many first responders still dying today.
