Many Rhode Islanders marked the 13th anniversary of the September 11th terrorist attacks at a ceremony at the statehouse today.

On hand were elected officials, members of the state’s police and fire units, as well as victims’ family members. Pat Nassaney, the father of Shawn Nassaney, who died on United Airlines Flight 175, which struck the south tower of the World Trade Center, addressed the crowd.
