Red Cross to honor lives lost on 9/11

By Chris Jamele

Buffalo, NY – The Western New York Families of September 11th in conjunction with the local Red Cross will be honoring those lost in the tragedy with an annual tribute and memorial vigil.

Flags representing each of the nearly three thousand lives lost in the attack will be placed on the lawn of the Red Cross office on Delaware Avenue.

"We created this tribute so that Western New Yorkers can remember every year how many lives were lost in the attacks of September 11th, 2001," said Leigh Macadlo, a member of the Western New York Families of September 11th. "We want to remember each innocent person whose life was ended so abruptly and tragically, and honor the extraordinary sacrifice of responders who gave their lives for others that day."
