Indian Capital comes together for remembrance, prayer

Several dozen area people gathered at the McKinley County Courthouse the morning of Sept. 11 to honor those who lost their lives 15 years ago during the terrorist events of Sept. 11, 2001. The free event was put on by the city of Gallup and attended by folks from around greater McKinley County.

Mayor Jackie McKinney delivered a short address and said police officers and first responders work daily under sometimes trying conditions to help ensure the safety of people under their watch. He said the sacrifices made by first responders that day in 2001 must never be forgotten.

“These are remarkable people,” McKinney said.
