September 11 is a date that many people respect and remember and also still fear a little bit. Any type of something out of place and it may bring back memories of fear and fright. Well, the Boston Herald is reporting that Boston's Logan Airport is now apologizing for frightening people after running an ill-timed fire drill on Sept. 11, 2013.
The airport is apologizing for the fire drill that not only had sirens but had smoke and flames as well, on the 12th anniversary of the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks.
Gov. Deval Patrick had no idea, ahead of time, that the fire drill was going to take place. Gov. Patrick proceeded to call the timing of the fire drill "dumb."
Gov. Patrick went on to say that even though the mistake was made, he has full confidence in the leadership of the public agency that runs the airport, which is the Massachusetts Port Authority.
A statement was published by the port authority with an apology. The statement read that it "understands it may have offended many of those touched by the events of Sept. 11."
This apology came after harsh criticism on the Facebook page of Boston's Logan Airport after they announced the runway fire drill.
