STATEMENT FROM SENATOR MICHAEL GIANARIS ON TENTH ANNIVERSARY OF SEPTEMBER 11, 2001

“September 11, 2001 is an experience that will remain engrained in our psyche forever. The emotional scars of that day will never leave us as we remember those who were lost, and my condolences continue to go out to their families and friends. May their memories be eternal.

While New York City will never be the same, it is gratifying to see the unity that developed among New Yorkers and the work that was done in the last decade to increase our preparedness and help prevent another attack.”

REMEMBERING SEPTEMBER 11

 

Dear Fellow New Yorker:

It’s hard to believe that 10 years have passed since the September 11th terrorist attacks. Like you, I remember where I was on that crisp and clear morning, how we frantically called our friends and family who worked in Lower Manhattan, and how we all watched in horror as the towers fell.

More than 3,000 people died on September 11th, many of whom lived within my Senate district and in the districts of my neighboring Senate colleagues. I attended two to three funerals a day in the weeks following those horrific attacks, and I will never forget the strength and courage of the families of those who perished.
