Silent tribute: 9/11 commemorated during parade down Miner Street

The rumbling of emergency vehicles was the only sound as a handful of residents and a bagpipe player waited outside the Idaho Springs Rec Center on Sept. 11.

A group of children stood by, holding hand-drawn American flags, while the real thing rippled nearby in the cool wind. Then the bagpipe player began playing “Amazing Grace” as the parade silently moved forward.

They marched to remember the attacks on 9/11, to honor the 104 Colorado residents killed in combat since that day and to support the community’s first responders.
