Hundreds of community members gathered at the University of South Florida Sarasota-Manatee campus to remember Sept. 11 and honor the victims and heroes of the terrorist attack. The ceremony began with a flag-raising by the Marine Corps Color Guard from the Fourth Amphibious Assault Battalion in Tampa.
Attendees then gathered around the campus lawn which was lined with 2,977 small American flags, one for each victim. The flags were placed by volunteers, students and first-responders the day before.
David Kotok, chief investment officer at Cumberland Advisors and a survivor of the attack, was the event’s guests of honor and keynote speaker. He escaped the World Trade Center’s south tower and witnessed American Airlines Flight 11 crash into the north tower.
“The images of 9/11 feel like a movie, but to see it first-hand was indelible,” Kotok said.
