An entire nation mourns the loss of the lives taken on September 11, 2001 in Washington DC, Pennsylvania and New York. Today is the anniversary of the largest tragedy in U.S. history, and it is a day for us all to mourn the lives that were taken too soon and to celebrate the bravery of our nation's heroes.

Today, Destin remembered all 2,983 lives taken that day with a flag raising ceremony at Destin Commons Patriot Circle. A military honor guard raised the American flag, followed by a flag for each branch of the military while the Niceville High School Choir, Opus One, sang the National Anthem.
