Hundreds of people gathered on the banks of the downtown canal Sunday, to dedicate a new memorial in honor of the victims of the September 11 attacks.

The idea for the memorial came from firefighter Greg Hess, who spent the days after the terrorist attacks with Indiana Task Force One searching for survivors.

The Port Authority in New York donated the steel beams from the World Trade Center, which make up the centerpiece of the memorial.

Many state leaders came to the ceremony as well.

The memorial also features remembrances of the victims of the four planes that crashed that day, as well as parts of an address delivered to the nation by former President George W. Bush.
