The bell tolled three times, once for each site that was struck 11 years ago by terrorists on Sept. 11, 2001. Paula Harper, a retired employee of the Fairfax County Office of Public Affairs, rang the bell at the 9/11 Memorial Grove during a remembrance ceremony at the Fairfax County Government Center this morning.

The mournful tone of a single bell tolling three times—once for each site that was struck on Sept. 11, 2001—echoed in the Fairfax County Government Center chambers this morning as community leaders, police, firefighters and citizens gathered to pay tribute to the victims of the terrorists attacks 11 years ago today.
