My very rst column for e Somers Record, “What have they

done to my city?,” was published September 13, 2012. Because it cap-

heroes, family, friends and strangers who perished that day and who

are still sacri cing their lives years later from 9/11-related illnesses.

“On that bright, clear September 11, 2001 morning, I was in our

and said that a plane had hit one of the Towers at the World Trade


By the time I returned to my desk, my co-workers told me it was

the North Tower that was hit and that the South Tower had also

been struck. I then knew that these strikes were not accidents, some-

thing terrible and horri c was happening.

“Who could hate us so much?”

Little did I know the horror and devastation wasn’t over, that the

Pentagon was targeted by these terrorists and that another plane

would go down in a quiet eld in Shanksville, PA. I did the only

thing I could: pray.

Later, our vice president called me into his o ce and asked that I
