The terror attacks that took place almost eight years ago on September 11th cost America nearly three thousand lives...

And a local ceramic studio is calling on Tallahasseeans to help honor their memory.

The owners of Ribits Enchanted Cottage are taking ceramic tiles to the 'Tiles for America' memorial at Ground Zero.

Kids and adults are invited to paint their own tiles which will soon be judged by local community leaders like Mayor John Marks.

The judges will pick the top 60 tiles and these will be delivered to Ground Zero on May 2nd.

Ribits Enchanted Cottage Owner Haydee Jackley says, "To keep the memory alive. It's because it's important in our country to know what has happened, what goes on and how we keep on going. 'Cuz we do keep on going. And America is a strong country that will continue to flourish if we stand together."
