Hudson -- Approximately 150 people gathered September 11 at the gazebo on the Hudson Green to observe the 15th anniversary of the terrorist attack on the United States of America.

On September 11, 2001, 19 militants associated with al-Qaeda hijacked four airliners. Two of the planes were flown into the towers of the World Trade Center in New York City, a third plane hit the Pentagon just outside Washington, D.C., and the fourth plane crashed in a field in Pennsylvania. More than 3,000 people were killed during the attacks.

The memorial anniversary service was led by Brian Suntken, pastor of the Community of Saint John.

Music was provided by The Choir of the Community of Saint John, Nicole Keller, musical director; The Choir of Western Reserve Academy, Midge Karamm, director; and a Brass Quintet made up of students from the Baldwin-Wallace University Conservatory of Music.

Members of the Community of Saint John and students from Western Reserve Academy read from a wide range of faith traditions, including Christian, Jewish, Muslim, Hindu and pagan.
