An American Tribute

Lubbock took time to remember those killed four years ago, the first responders, and those who survived the nations latest tragedy, Hurricane Katrina. Lubbock's American Tribute was a celebration of honor. Mayor Marc McDougal, City Councilman Tom Martin, and Lubbock I.S.D. Superintendent Wayne Havens spoke to more than 300 people at the ceremony.

Sunday 1,000 flags were placed at the Reese Technology Center to salute first responders and the victims of 9/11. This year the victims of Hurricane Katrina were also honored. 

"They're saluting 9/11 crisis and Katrina devastation and hopefully a new beginning for me and others from that tragedy that we just left from," said Katrina survivor, Michael Stud.
