I support Alhambra Source as often as I can because I believe a free and independent press is vital to the democratic process. No other news outlet with high journalistic standards consistently covers the stories and issues that matter to our community.

Such a valuable source of what’s happening in city where we live. Objective reporting that informs us and allows us to come to our own conclusions.

Remembering 9/11: 'I hope that the community never forgets what happened that day'

Alhambra fire fighters and police officers honored on Thursday those who lost their lives in the terrorist attacks on Sept. 11, 2001. The memorial included prayers, speeches, and the ringing of a bell — a ceremony to honor fire fighters who have fallen in the line of duty.

Dozens of residents, city officials, and community members attended the ceremony and listened to remarks from fire department officials. Chaplain Mary Glen led a prayer and encouraged the audience to remember those who lost their lives on 9/11, Assistant Chief Raymond Mosack described the terrorist attacks, Captain James Anderson explained the tolling of the bell and asked for a moment of silence, and Chief Bill Walker closed the ceremony with remarks on the importance of Patriot Day.

"Today when you watch the television or the news or different programming, they use words all the time like 'shocking' and 'outrageous' and all this type of hyperbole. That day those words fell short to explain what we experienced," Walker said. He elaborated in an email, "I hope that the community never forgets what happened that day and the sacrifice made by the rescuers. I think Patriot Day is a day for us to remember those we lost, appreciate those we still have, and take pride in our country and fellow Americans."
