Never Forgotten - West Virginia Remembers 9/11
West Virginians gathered at the State Capitol today to remember the events of September 11, 2001 and to honor the memories of those who lost their lives during the terrorist attacks on the United States and the rescue efforts which followed.

Students from Overbrook Elementary's Kindergarten class taught by teacher Stephanie Simunic as well as children from the West Virginia Public Employee Day Care led those in attendance in the Pledge of Allegiance.

The Liberty Bell was rung eight times, signifying the number of years since the horrific attacks occurred, by Dr. Kenneth Ambrose and his wife Sharon, whose son, Dr. Paul Ambrose, was killed in the attacks. John Cox from the Kanawha Valley Fife and Drum Corps closed the ceremony with Amazing Grace played on the bagpipes.
