Boston commemorates 15th anniversary of Sept. 11 attacks

BOSTON (WHDH) - On the 15th anniversary of the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks, Boston took time to remember those lost in New York, Washington D.C., and Shanksville, Pa., many of whom were from Massachusetts.

There were tributes for victims across Boston on Sunday morning.

Mayor Marty Walsh laid a wreath at the 9/11 memorial and garden of remembrance in the Boston Public Garden, which was adorn with hundreds of flags.

“Today is a somber day, but today is also an opportunity for us to look back and have positive reflections,” said Walsh at the ceremony. “We honor your family members’ special legacies.”

Inside the State House, an emotional tribute to the 206 victims with ties to Massachusetts took place.

The stories of loss seemed to weigh heavily on the Governor Charlie Baker.

“To think about all those people whose moms and dads didn’t get to watch their kids grow up or the kids who didn’t get to grow up with their parents, it’s just hugely sad and I hope we never forget,” said Governor Baker.
