Herkimer College held it's annual 9-11 remembrance ceremony in the Sarkus-Bush Auditorium today to reflect back on the 13 years since the attacks on the World Trade Center that cost nearly 3,000 lives.

Assemblyman Marc Butler, Assemblywoman Claudia Tenney and Senator James Seward spoke at the event, and Seward said there continues to be a great sense of loss even after 13 years.

Seward added that watching Americans band together after the attacks to begin the rebuilding and healing process shows just how strong our country is.
