SEPTEMBER 11, 2021

I remember September 11th

Most people 30 years or older have vivid memories of the events of September 11, 2001.  Today my wife and I watched as the names of those who died were shown on the screen of our TV, recognizing a number of the names of individuals we had known.  The morning of September 11th, they went to work.  On September 11th, they did not go home.

On September 11th, I was Associate Regional Director and Chief of Staff of the Eastern Region of US Immigration and Naturalization (USINS).  The Regional Director and I were meeting that day with individuals seeking to do business with the USINS.  A staff member came into the Director’s conference room and said to turn on the TV right away.  We turned the TV on and watched the initial coverage of the first plane going into the World Trade Center (WTC) buildings.  One of the guests in the meeting turned white.  When we asked what was wrong, he stated that his wife was scheduled to attend a meeting that morning on one of the top floors of the WTC.  He went out of the room to try to reach his wife on her cell phone, but he could not get through.  As we continued to watch, and tried to gain contact with our NYC offices, the second plane flew into the second WTC building.

Sharon Weaver, wife of Dwight Weaver, was working in the U.S. Pentagon when that location was hit by a crashing jet.  She was able to escape, but many of those she worked with did not. Sharon is a NARFE member and a past Editor of the NCNARFE Newsletter.

I moved to Staten Island when I was in my early teens.  I started my work career with USINS as a Criminal Investigator/Special Agent in NYC.  A very good friend of mine worked in the WTC and I would meet him there on a regular basis for lunch.  I knew the buildings from attending meetings and having training there.  I could go on with story after story that I was told about how people survived that day,  how they escaped collapsing or evacuated nearby buildings,  or how they walked miles to get out of NYC and get home to their families.  They, I, We will never forget that day and the many days after.

I ask that you continue to remember: all those who were lost,  all who lost family or loved ones, and all who suffered from the event.
