9-11 World Trade Center Steel Coming To Highlands

Members of the Highlands Fire Department will be transporting a piece of the World Trade Center from JFK Airport to the World Trade Center site and then on to Highlands tomorrow, according to Councilwoman and former Fire Chief Rebecca Kane.

Kane said that the Port Authority approved the HFD’s application for a piece of the WTC to be permanently memorialized at their firehouse with a mural and lighting on June 27th.

The steel will arrive at Veteran’s Park in Highlands tomorrow, September 7, at approximately 6PM. Highlands will have a formal memorial service at the park on Sunday September 11 at 4:30PM.

    I will probably get a lot of flack for this but I think as a society we are really getting carried away with the whole monument thing. From every town having its own 9-11 monument to road side memorials for dead people every 10 feet.

    Enough already

    10 years out, and we’re that jaded already?.. guess you missed/didn’t yet watch, the above remarks by the Gov., as to the permanent scars the event left on so many families and so many innocent lives that fateful day… if it didn’t personally affect your family, lucky you!..the reason we here in NJ see so many monuments and hear so much about it, is because per capita,only NY suffered more losses that day.. and, if memorials and talking helps those who were affected and us to recall and be reminded, that this can and likely WILL, (especially as this bunch now in Washington daily weakens us in many ways as a country), happen again,somewhere else, at any time, and maybe we won’t be so personally lucky the next time!!.. if you don’t feel a tug and the sense of loss of our freedoms and safety, I actually pity you.. to be so negative, sarcastic and jaded about such a momentous breach and attack on our homeland, does NOT bode well for the USA, going forward.. shame on you,really..

    The nation did not dwell on D-Day, Pearl Harbor, Vietnam or any number of tragedies in this manner and the country was the better for it. Those impacted most have asked for privacy and a place to pay their respects. The endless replaying of the crumbling towers and the annual parade of misery trotted out anew by politicians serves only to keep us mired in the past. This is not being jaded, it is asking America to look forward and build a stronger, smarter country that is not left open to for such a catastrophic breach of security. If anything, I pity this country if we continue to live in past. For those who experienced that horrible day, no monuments or ceremonies are necessary for remembrance.

    Well said enuff.
    Look I feel for the peolple who lost someone. But you know what. People are lost for all sorts of reasons everyday and there isn’t anybody who hasn’t lost someone but not only has 9-11 become nothing but a political road show its just this whole idea that every person and every thing needs a monument. It is out of control and is a sign of a weakness in the American psyche. The best place for a monument is in your heart. Build it and keep it there.

    I long for the days when we kept our feelings bottled up inside where they belong Dammit.

    So here we are 10 years later and still there are 28 pages of the 9/11 report which haven’t been released! This video sheds a lot of light on what those 28 pages might have in them.. Let us grow out of the silly idea that a bunch of cave dwelling Afghanis were able to pull something like that off! Americans deserve closure. Send this video out to everyone you know! http://larouchepac.com/10yearslater
