9/11 victims honored in 'Remembrance Walk'

HONOLULU(HawaiiNewsNow)- Hundreds filled the streets of downtown Honolulu Sunday evening to pay tribute to the victims of the nation's deadliest terrorist attack.

Mayor Peter Carlisle joined paramedics, police, firefighters, military members and others in this year's Mayor's Remembrance Walk.

The procession started in front of the Honolulu Police Department's main station on Beretania Street and ended at the eternal flame fronting Honolulu Hale.

Carlisle says he's been encouraged by the country's response to the tragedy.

"I think we were in a real turning point in our nation when that happened," Carlisle said. "We could look at despair, point fingers and lay blame, but the fact what happened is that everybody came together and made this a safer nation and safer communities and safer cities."

Participants ended the walk with a moment of silence at Honolulu Hale. This Tuesday marks the 11th anniversary of the attacks.
