NASHVILLE, Tenn. – Cities across the nation paused Wednesday to remember the lives lost on September 11, 2001.

This year marked the 12th anniversary of the attacks. Many Americans found ways to not only remember those lost but honor them, as well.

Neighbors in Middle Tennessee helped commemorate the anniversary by saying "thank you" to first responders.

In Nashville, neighbors in the Forest Pointe Subdivision of Antioch dropped off meals for firefighters at Station 33. It's a tradition they've been doing for 10 years.

One local couple arrived with a piece of history recovered from the debris of one of the World Trade Center Towers.

"It just makes me reflect on all the lives lost on that day," said Captain Ron Teague with the Metro Fire Department. "I feel sorrow and sadness, but I also feel pride too."

The neighborhood group in Antioch has planned to deliver meals for shifts Thursday and Friday.
