'Heroes are not forgotten'

Hickory observed the anniversary of Sept. 11 with a morning program on Union Square.
The event commemorated 2,977 victims killed during terrorist attack on the World Trade Center, the Pentagon and in a thwarted attack on the U.S. Capital.
"We pause to remember the victims of the heinous terrorist attacks ... These were people just like you and me," said Hickory Mayor Rudy Wright. "Many became heroes that day."
Hickory High School's band performed the Star Spangled Banner and other patriotic music during the ceremony that featured a moment of silence at 8:46 a.m., the time when the first plane crashed into the north tower of the World Trade Center.
