ROME N.Y.- A prayer vigil was held Friday night in Rome to honor those lost on 9/11.

The vigil was held at the Memorial Park across the street from the Rome Fire Department on Black River Boulevard.

With Coronavirus reducing the number of ceremonies and attendance in the area, Robert Aldrich wanted to do something to honor those who lost their lives on September 11, 2001.

"I didn't see anything going on for 9/11, and every year we always do something. We put up flags, or whatever, and I just wanted to do something a little bit more this year. I talked to my pastor and said I want to do a prayer vigil, and he thought it was a good idea so I said I'm going to do this." said Aldrich.

Over a dozen people showed up for the prayer vigil Friday night.
