LANSING, Mich. (WILX) - Representatives took the time to remember the lives lost from the attack on our country 22 years ago on Sept. 11.

Government officials and first responders were at the Capitol on Sept. 7 to remember who was lost on Sept. 11, 2001, and honor the first responders on the front lines daily.

One state lawmaker said they were honoring those who died and those who keep us safe every day.

“Today is one day to remember 9/11 and all those folks that we have lost,” said Rep. Emily Dievendorf, D-Lansing. “But also to express our appreciation for our first responders who put their lives on the line every day in responding to our natural disaster as we just saw with the storm.”

Almost 3,000 people, including many first responders and emergency workers, died in the attacks on Sept. 11, 2001.
