Nineteen years ago, today, our City, our State, and our Nation was struck by an attack that turned the world upside down. Please take the time today to pause and remember those who perished.
On that day, Local 1-2 Brothers and Sisters rushed in while a nation stood still in shock. We were right there at Ground Zero where the Twin Towers had stood. Working round the clock, we brought power back to downtown Manhattan and searched the pile hand in hand with other First Responders. And so, on this somber day, let us especially remember the scores of our Brothers and Sisters who became sickened, some of whom died, because of their heroic work that day and in the months that followed.
