Large crowds gathered at Town Center Park Saturday for the City of Suwanee's 9/11 commemorative ceremony and unveiling of 'Remembrance.'
Remembrance, the 1,638 pound World Trade Center artifact has been acquired by the City of Suwanee.
The twisted steel will be on display for a week.
A city spokeswoman said a final destination for the artifact had not been determined.
"I feel the loss not as much as a family, but I feel for the totally innocent people," park visitor Brennan Rojas said.
This is the first remembrance ceremony ever held for 9/11 victims in Suwanee.
A remembrance wall was setup for visitors to share their thoughts.
"I just wrote on the wall, 'We miss you. We haven't forgotten. God bless them and the country,'" Brennan said.
A candlelight ceremony was also held to honor the public safety officials who lost their lives.
Police, fire, and EMT officials from throughout Gwinnett County were in attendance.
"Every time I look at old images I think, what if that had been me, or somewhere in Atlanta," Suwanee police officer Robert Stevens said.
