KALAMAZOO (WKZO) -- Several hundred turned out for last night’s 9-11 Commemoration in Bronson Park on a near perfect evening for outdoor activities. Keynote speaker Pat Anderson was in the World Trade Center on that day. He learned three things as a result of 9-11, that Americans would not just standby and watch, that they will rebuild anything our enemies knock down, and the third thing is that America loves its freedom.
Anderson is the Chairman of the Michigan Remembers 9-11 fund in Lansing. Similar services were held all over the nation yesterday.
