Remembering 9-11, 17 years later

Steve Motsinger rings the bell at Galloway Memorial Episcopal Church in downtown Elkin Tuesday morning at 9:43 a.m. in remembering the tragedy of Sept. 11, 2001, when terrorists attacked the United States. Steve and Jane Motsinger rang the bell at each time a plane crashed — 8:45 a.m. for the North Tower of the World Trade Center, 9:03 a.m. for South Tower, 9:43 a.m. for the Pentagon and 10:10 a.m. for Shanksville, Pennsylvania. Each time the bell rang seven times, symbolizing those who have responded, served, protected, defended, sacrificed, suffered and lost life. - Wendy Byerly Wood | The Tribune
