Barrington High School's morning show on the Eagles News Network pays tribute to the victims of the 9/11 tragedy 10 years ago yesterday.
Barrington High School's popular morning show, "Sunrise On Eagles' Wings," hosted some special guests on Monday morning in memory of the 9/11 victims who perished 10 years ago. The school's choral ensemble gathered in the studio to pay tribute to those who died with a moving rendition of "The Star Spangled Banner." It was followed by a moment of silence. Principal Joseph Hurley said the morning's song and moment of silence were part of a recognition of the events of 10 years ago. The flag in front of the school also was lowered to half mast, and social studies classes planned different activities over the course of the day. Hurley, who was an assistant principal 10 years ago, said he remembers the day very well. “It was one of those events…

A service of remembrance for 9/11 victims and recognition for the police, fire and military personnel who responded was held at the Barrington Baptist Church on Sunday morning -- the 10th anniversary of the terrorist attack on America. The church also created a Field of Flags on its lawn to remember the 2,977 victims of 9/11. Click here to see the field. To see more stories on how 9/11 is being remembered, click here.

Millions of people across the country were affected by the 9/11 attacks. Some experienced the tragic loss of a loved one, some found an inspiring way to help those who were grieving, and others experienced a political awakening. To help reflect the endless diversity of their experiences, Patch looked out across our sites to pull together 911 snapshots of everyday Americans whose lives were changed by the events of that day. From across the country, this Patch site and hundreds of others captured the faces, keepsakes, memorials, ceremonies, flags, fund-raisers, deployments and the still-raw emotions that followed the attacks. Taken together they create a powerful mosaic that is large in scope but often deeply personal. Click through to see…

You are invited to a service of remembrance for 9/11 victims at the Barrington Baptist Church on Sunday morning -- the 10th anniversary of the terrorist attack on America.

The plaque, an eighth-grader's class project 10 years ago, recognizes all 2,977 victims of the Sept. 11 tragedy but especially Barrington native David Angell and his wife.
Ten years ago, Jack Wray, age 12, walked into Barrington library director Debbie Barchi’s office and asked her if he could raise money to erect a plaque in memory of the Sept. 11 victims. It was a few weeks after terrorists crashed planes into the World Trade Center's twin towers and the Pentagon. That plaque now hangs on a wall between the library's circulation and reference desks. It recognizes, in particular, Barrington native David Angell and his wife, Lynn, who were killed on American Airlines Flight 11. It is the only public memorial in Barrington for the victims of 9/11. “I was blown away by his confidence, and his social consciousness,” said Barchi. “He wanted it to be in the library, which he said was a gathering place in the …

Barrington Baptist Church plants 2,977 flags on the front lawn to remember each of the victims of the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attack on America.
A field of flags waves in front of the Barrington Baptist Church. Each of the tiny American flags remembers the 2,977 victims of the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attack on the U.S. “Until you see it, you really don’t realize how many people died,” said Dan Caine, worship leader at the church on Old County Road. The flags were placed in front of the church last Sunday after the 9:30 am worship service by about 150 worshipers. The flags will flap in the breeze for at least two weeks, Caine said. “I saw it in Danbury, Connecticut,” said Caine, who came up with the idea of creating the church’s own field of flags to remember the victims. “We’re adding laminated copies of the victims’ names to the flags on Tuesday.” “We wanted to make a memorial …

Patch sites across America are telling the story of Sept. 11, 2001, and the decade that followed in words and photos.
Monday, September 5, 2011
To commemorate the 10th anniversary of the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks, Patch compiled a gallery of images to document that day and its impact on the past decade. Nearly 900 Patch sites across America contributed to the project, each submitting a photo that tells a piece of the Sept. 11 story. That complete American project will be available later this week. Here are the images from our part of the world. As we move closer to the 10-year anniversary, we invite readers to talk about what Sept. 11 means to them and how it did, or did not, affect them. To see our region's complete coverage of the 10-year anniversary, you can also follow our special Facebook page, Rhode Island Remembers 9/11.
