That day is one that will be with me forever, and I agree something is missing. I was working in Jersey City at 101 Hudson at the time; heard about the 1st plane then watched the 2nd hit. They evacuated us becasue our building was the next tallest in the area. Had to walk to Hoboken before walking across the Bayonne Bridge that night back to Staten Island.

We must never forget what happened, and we must always support those who serve and protect this nation of ours.

For me, this day is doubly sad as 4 years ago today I lost my mom as well.
