People gathered in remembrance down at Riverside Park
Operation Homefront hosted a Freedom Walk to remember
and honor the fallen.
Besides the walk .
the event also feautred reflective presentations .
and a water cannon salute.
Orginizers say even thought the events of 9-11 were
far away from La Crosse .
it still had a profound impact on the community.
I think people just related to what happend that day
and it could have been any one of us.
It could have happened anywhere in our nation and
we relate to that and that particular day, all Americans
learned how to mourn for people they've never met.
Two shrines were on display during the event with
one of them featuring an actual steal beam from one
of the Twin Towers.
