ONTARIO - The community gathered last Friday to reflect on a national tragedy.

A ceremony was held at Four Rivers Cultural Center in remembrance of those who died in the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks in the United States 19 years ago. Nearly 3,000 people were killed in the coordinated attacks in New York, Washington D.C., and Pennsylvania; the toll included some 400 first responders who rushed to respond as hijacked planes struck the Twin Towers of the World Trade Center in New York.

Last week's memorial event was hosted by the Ontario American Legion and the city of Ontario.
