Several members of the Gresham community lined Powell Boulevard Sunday, Sept. 11, in remembrance of all who lost their lives during the 2001 coordinated suicide terrorist attacks by Islamic extremists more than two decades ago.

Hosted by the Gresham VFW Auxiliary Post 180, a group stood along the Gresham Heroes Memorial, 219 N.W. First St., waving flags to mark Patriot Day as many passers-by honked in support.

A national day of mourning was first introduced by the US. House on Oct. 25, 2001, and has continued to be observed 21 years later. The current day is marked with service and small acts of kindness.
