NEW YORK MILLS, NY – People marched silently along Main Street Tuesday in honor of those who died in the 9/11 attacks.
The silent march has become a somber, yet optimistic tradition in New York Mills.
First responders, military personnel, community members, and Boy Scouts marched together as a few people with American Flags watched from the sidewalks.
Denise Decicco was one of those who remembered.
“It’s important to remember the people who sacrificed their lives and everything that’s come from this. The country as a whole, I think has become a better nation. We’ve come together and it’s something we should just never forget. We should never forget the first responders and the people who sacrificed their lives so we could continue to enjoy the freedom that we do.”
Following the silent march, there was a ceremony at the 9/11 memorial near the New York Mills Post Office.
Roses were placed on the memorial in remembrance of those who died that day.
