TRI-CITIES, Wash.-- It was an emotional day, Saturday, as communities across the country came together to remember those lost in the 9/11 terror attacks twenty years ago. There was a ceremony at the 9/11 memorial at the Southridge Sports Complex in Kennewick. Kennewick is part of a small group of communities that received actual steel from the World Trade Center towers. Pasco PD's Officer J. Buckley sang the National Anthem.
