El Paso groups remember the events of 9-11

EL PASO, Texas - El Paso groups are inviting the community to come together to remember 9/11. 

Sixteen years have passed since the day two planes crashed into the World Trade Center in New York City, another plane struck the Pentagon and a fourth plane crashed in a field near Shanksville, Pennsylvania.

The terrorists killed thousands, and changes the lives of people around the globe. 

The El Paso Fire Department, El Paso Police Department and El Paso Sheriff's Office will pay tribute at a special ceremony at Station 18, 7901 San Jose Road at 9 a.m.

El Paso police Lt. John C. Schneider will be the keynote speaker. He was a member of the NYPD in Manhattan when the World Trade Center towers fell that tragic day.

Law enforcement officials will be reflecting on the day, and presenting a wreath at a memorial.

Parking is limited to Milton Road. 

The nonprofit group Team Red, White and Blue is hosting a 9/11 Moving Tribute at Veterans Memorial Park, located at 6501 Salem Drive from 6 a.m. to 8:30 p.m. 

Group and community members will be running and walking with a U.S. flag from sunrise to sunset to show that the community can come together in remembrance.
