In memoriam of those who perished in the tragic attacks of September 11, 2001, Mayor Foster was joined by dozens of Long Beach police and firemen in an early morning ceremony in front of City Hall’s memorial statue. The Mayor gave a short speech followed by a moment of silence and bagpipes playing “Amazing Grace.” Few words were spoken, so I’ll do the same and leave you with these images.

Free news isn’t cheap.
We believe that everyone should have access to important local news, for free.
However, it costs money to keep a local news organization like this one—independently owned and operated here in Long Beach, without the backing of any national corporation—alive.
If independent local news is important to you, please consider supporting us with a monthly or one-time contribution. Read more.
