More than 50 college students, veterans, and members of law enforcement gathered to pay their respects to 9/11 victims.

There were New York Police officers in attendance who responded to the attack.

Who say to this day, 9/11 is still hard for them to talk about.

Craven Community College president and Air Force Veteran Ray Staats says he remembers that day in detail.

A day that changed the way we think.

He says 9/11 is a piece of history everyone should remember and learn more about.

For those that were very young and not having been born yet having a sense of history and understanding why we think the way we do about certain things.
