SEQUIM — An estimated 1,500 residents gathered Friday at the Sequim High School stadium to pray for those killed in terrorist attacks in New York City and Washington, D.C.
Many clasped American flags in a show of patriotism. Others simply bowed their heads in prayer.
Emotions ranged from sorrow to anger during the interfaith service.
The terrorist attacks have only strengthened the United States and the will of its people, Mayor Bill Thomas said during the prayer vigil.
“You’ve bloodied us as we’ve never been bloodied before,” Thomas said. “You don’t know what we’re about. You’re about to learn.”This full report appears in the Sunday Peninsula Daily News, on sale throughout Clallam and Jefferson counties.
