Spotlights to illuminate Phoenix sky in 9/11 event

Two spotlights will illuminate the Phoenix sky on Sunday night in remembrance of those who died in the Sept. 11, 2001 terrorist attacks on the East Coast.

The spotlights will be lit outside the State Capitol as part of a remembrance ceremony on the 10th anniversary of the attacks.

The remembrance event is called “9/11: Remembering Our American Heroes.”

It will feature Arizona historian Marshall Trimble, Phoenix Bishop Thomas Olmsted, Phoenix Fire Department Chief Bob Khan, and Mark Spencer representing the Arizona Police Association and the Phoenix Law Enforcement Association.

As part of the remembrance, residents and businesses in downtown Phoenix are being asked to turn off their lights starting at 6:30 p.m. Sunday in honor of those who were lost on Sept. 11.
