State officials say they are determined to not let the coronavirus prevent victims' loved of the 9/11 terror attacks of being honored 19 years later.
Officials and residents visited Sherwood Island State Park Thursday to honor the lives lost on Sept. 11, 2001. Victims' names were read, followed by remarks from Gov. Ned Lamont and other officials.
The event, which usually draws hundreds, was scaled back due to coronavirus restrictions. But the dozens in attendance took park in a moment of silence as well as a prayer.
Steven O'Brien says he will never forget losing his twin brother Scott in the North Tower of the World Trade Center.
"I think it's important to bear witness for people to remember that people who love the people who were lost are still here," he says.
