CHAMPAIGN – Hundreds of people joined Champaign Fire Chief Gary Ludwig and many other leaders from Champaign-Urbana in honoring the September 11, 2001 attack victims. The ceremony took part 20 years to the day after the attacks. Hijackers crashed jetliners into the World Trade Center in New York City, the Pentagon and Shanksville, Pennsylvania. As a result, nearly 3,000 people were killed on that day.
