BROOMFIELD, Colo. (CBS4)– Families and emergency responders gathered at the 9/11 Memorial in Broomfield on what was being called a “day of reflection.”

The Chief of North Metro Fire led the brief and emotional ceremony honoring those who lost their lives 12 years ago on that day.

“I wonder where the strength and the courage comes from for the ordinary to become extraordinary. I wonder how things of faith, things of spirit, things of trust, things of hope, seem to rise up in the American people when it seems like everything is falling down around them, said Chief Joseph Bruce.

Among those who were there, the family of Chris Faughan who died when the first tower collapsed.

They received a flag from the fire chief on Wednesday.
