(VIDEO) 20th Anniversary of 9/11 ceremony honored Todd Beamer, Mark Bingham + first responders


“Extraordinary acts on behalf of ordinary people,” reads the plaque at the 9/11 Memorial in Los Gatos that commemorates the actions of hometown heroes Todd Beamer and Mark Bingham.

They were two of the people responsible for helping bring down Flight 93 in the midst of the September 11, 2001 terrorism attacks.

Veterans, government officials and local community organizations gathered near Los Gatos High School, where the “hometown heroes” attended, to reflect on their selfless actions—and those of first responders in the wake of the attacks on the Twin Towers and Pentagon, 20 years ago.

We uploaded this highlight reel of the ceremony to our Los Gatan YouTube page.
