Never Forget: Remembering 9/11 20 Years Later

Never Forget: Remembering 9/11 20 Years Later

"God bless our first responders and fellow Americans that we lost on September 11th. We honor their memories and forever hold them in our hearts.” – Senator Daphne Jordan

"I remember being at our office on Broadway and going to get a TV so that we could watch the news. As I was walking past Professor Moriartys I could see people standing at the bar looking up at the news and overhearing them say a plane had hit the Pentagon. It was such an overwhelming sense of fear, sadness  and helplessness. It was the perfect day until it wasn't.” - Kate Deloria

"There was a Red Cross blood drive at Empire State College on Union Avenue, and as news spread cars pulled over and came in to donate blood. It was very moving." -Debra Park
