From all of us at St. Patrick's Catholic Church: Thank you to the Madras Police Department, Jefferson County Fire Department and the Sheriff Department. for helping us in making our "Solemn Observance" of 9/11 at the park a success.
We paused at Mass on Sunday during the "Prayers of the Faithful" to remember the victims of the attack. Ten seconds of silence led to an explosion of sirens, horns and flashing lights, which introduced the 10 rings of the fire bell, one for each year.
Kyle Yeager blessed us and our tearing eyes with the most flawless rendition of TAPS I've ever experienced.
