READING, Pa. - Sixteen years have passed, but the nation will never forget.
Across the country Monday, communities joined to reflect on the terror attacks of September 11, 2001, to remember the roughly 3,000 killed, and to support the loved ones left behind.
In Reading's City Park, dozens of people stood with members of the Reading Fire Department.
Speakers reminded the public of that sense of support many Americans felt following the attacks.
They connected the hatred at some riots in Charlottesville and devastation after recent hurricanes, saying what we need now is that sense of togetherness that so many felt 16 years ago.
Other events are scheduled for Monday evening. Conrad Weiser Middle School will hold a memorial service at 6:30 p.m., and Governor Mifflin High School will hold a patriotic concert at 7:30 p.m.
