Remembering September 11

September 9th, 2008 - 11:03 pm ICT by David M N James  

September 11 attacksSeven years down the line, the American society is commemorating the worst terrorist attack they have ever witnessed and experienced in their lives.

Numerous people are planning to assemble at the Staten Island, N.Y to grieve and memorialize the solemn day. September 11th is increasingly becoming a matter of individual choice. Analysts and psychiatrists are assessing whether People may decide to observe silence at the family dinner table, volunteer or be present at one of dozens of formal remembrance ceremonies to be held by faith-based groups, schools, cultural institutions and other organizations across Staten Island and citywide.

The Staten commemoration is one of the many events and will honor the 274 Staten Islanders who perished in the World Trade Center buildings, and all of the 2,998 lives tragically lost that day. In Santa Barbara, the Patron Saint of Firefighters, have been brought to New York by two priests from Burano, Italy. They will be part of the memorial observation at Ground Zero at 2 p.m. in front of the quarters of FDNY Engine 10 and Ladder 10, at 124 Liberty St. At 3 p.m., there will be a procession to downtown Manhattan’s St. Peter’s R.C. Church for a memorial mass. This is just part of a big event which is feared to be a target of Al Qaeda who has issued a threat already.

The government will also share with its people the sad day when the state security was breached and thousands of lives lost.
