SEATTLE - Several local leaders attended a remembrance at the Seattle Center. They looked back at how the 9/11 attacks brought Western Washington together.
"There was a sense of unity and common purpose that somehow we had to come together as a community to face these challenges,” said Seattle Mayor Mike McGinn.
"We gained a new appreciation for the resilience of the American people," said King County Executive Dow Constantine.
Senator Maria Cantwell also spoke at the ceremony. She thanked the hundreds of local emergency workers who volunteered to help with recovery operations at the attack sites
