Many ceremonies marking the terrorist attacks of 9/11/2001 took place in Rockland County yesterday. While the experience of the tragedy was shared by the entire country, persons in the NY metro area were hit the hardest by the loss of life.
At Rockland County’s official memorial ceremony held at Haverstraw Bay Park, County Executive Ed Day recalled 80 individuals with ties to Rockland who perished on Sept. 11, 2001.
We have been fortunate not to suffer another attack on our soil, Day said, noting that the current turmoil in Iraq serves to highlight that we must remain vigilant.
