NorthPark establishes Honor Court

Some have equated the Sept. 11, 2001 terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center in New York City as being this generation’s JFK assassination.

Among the fallen were 466 first-responders and service members who gave their lives in the line of duty.

Over the last decade, NorthPark Community Church has not forgotten their sacrifice or the deadliest attack yet on American soil.

With community efforts, it has created a place of honor right here in the SCV.

The Honor Court, located on the campus of NorthPark Community Church in Santa Clarita, is a monument to commemorate the lives, deeds and living memory of those in law enforcement, emergency response and armed services, who made the ultimate sacrifice.

The dedication and inauguration of the Honor Court will be Sunday and recognize the 10-year anniversary of the terrorist attacks on New York, as well as honor two NorthPark families whose loved ones died in the line of duty: Marine Lance Cpl. Ricky P. Slocum, who died Oct. 24, 2004, serving in Abu Ghraib, Iraq; and Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Deputy David March, who was killed April 29, 2003, in Irwindale. The Honor Court is to be a place of reflection and a solemn expression of gratitude. It is also to be a beacon of strength and affirmation for the local Santa Clarita Community, and beyond.
