Run Time: 00:15
Description: Citizens rose up September 11th and proved that we will always conquer evil.


The tribute heard speakers from the Missouri National Guard and the Department of Public Safety.  They recognized Missouri's task 1 force, New York firefighters and police, and all volunteers for their efforts.

Issues of safety at the Capitol have reduced in the last 5 years.  After a brief increase of security, funding was cut back by the end of the 2004 fiscal year.
