ATLANTA (AP) - Cities across the state have hosted memorial events in observation of the 12th anniversary of the Sept. 11 terror attacks.
The City of Suwanee will dedicate a piece of a steel beam from one of the World Trade Center towers Wednesday evening as a Sept. 11 memorial.
The 1,600-pound fragment was given to the city of Suwanee by the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey two years ago.
In Atlanta, the police and fire departments marked the anniversary with a morning ceremony at the Public Safety Headquarters on Peachtree Street. Police Chief George Turner and Fire Chief Kelvin Cochran were in attendance.
At Georgia Tech, about 3,000 miniature American flags are flying to represent those who were killed in the terrorist attacks.
