Remembering September 11th

Like so many New Yorkers, I clearly remember where I was on that crisp, clear morning of September 11th, 2001.And while more than a decade has now passed, the memory of that tragic day is still fresh in our minds. The sorrow and the pain that we felt are still with us.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. Their loss is felt every day, but never more so than on this day.
