In Harrisburg, Pa., Remembrance of September 11th Attacks

By Tony Romeo

HARRISBURG, Pa. (CBS) -- Paramedics and other first responders took part in a ceremony at the state capitol today to remember those who lost their lives eleven years ago in the terrorist attacks.

The names of Pennsylvania emergency workers who had given their lives in the line of duty were read during a ceremony outside the state capitol on a beautiful day, Governor Corbett noted, much like September 11th, 2001.

The governor said the first responders who died on that day gave their lives so that something bigger than themselves would live on.

"Each of them -– those who came home to us, and those we lost -– stood guard over our American dream. And we must always do our part by remembering," Corbett said.

The governor said, however, that the best way to remember those heroes is to continue to protect the values for which they gave their last full measure of devotion.
