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.

“On the 10th Anniversary of September 11th, 2001, we all honor and remember those who lost their lives on that tragic day,” said State Senator Lee Zeldin (R, C, I- Shirley).

9/11 will forever remain a day of reflection for all Americans, one now ingrained in the American psyche for generations to come. Not only must we remember the tragedy and terror of the day, but also the courage and great sacrifice of those first responders who answered the call when their fellow Americans needed them most.
