Patriotism, laughter, tears at 9/11 commemoration ceremony

Perhaps the most poignant moment of Sunday's ceremony to commemorate the lives lost in the 9/11 terror attacks was completely spontaneous.A Prescott Fire Department ladder truck screamed by the Yavapai County Courthouse, headed south on Montezuma to an emergency call, prompting the speaker, Laura Molinaro, a retired Commander with the Prescott Valley Police Department, to stop and wait for the siren to fade. When it did, she said, "There they are, folks, your first responders."
