Candlelight vigils will mark the 10th anniversary of the Sept. 11th attacks
Many Michiganders have paused to remember 9/11 at numerous events today. There are a few more commemorations planned for this evening.
Governor Rick Snyder is scheduled to take part in special ceremonies on the front lawn of the Henry Ford Museum in Dearborn. The candlelight vigil is being sponsored in part by the Dearborn Area Ministerial Association. Organizers say the point of the event is to promote the sense of unity that many Americans felt immediately after the attacks.
The east lawn of the state capitol will be the site of a candlelight vigil remembering the nearly three thousand who died in the attacks. Officials with the Michigan State Police, the National Guard and several state elected officials are scheduled to speak.
