Hempstead Town Honors Victims at September 11 Memorial

Town hosts annual memorial at Point Lookout Beach.

Eleven years ago today, hundreds of Long Islanders came to Point Lookout Beach in the wake of the terrorist attacks and looked to the west where the majestic Twin Towers once stood.

Since that date, Hempstead Town has invited residents back to the seaside location for an annual 9/11 Memorial Service.

At the 11th anniversary this year, an interactive program helped facilitate a connection between the victims of September 11th and those attending the ceremony. By writing the names of victims and other appropriate messages on a "Heroes of 9/11 Panorama," neighbors helped keep alive the legacy of love created by those who perished at Ground Zero.

Submit your photos of today's ceremony above.

God bless America! God bless our 09/11/2001 each and every one of our 2,750 loved ones who were taken by God too soon on that fateful day! God bless all of us and deliver us from evil now and forever. Amen.

Our loved ones were not taken by God,they were taken by Islamic animals who claim to kill in the name of God.

If they were taken by God, wouldn't that mean he caused the planes to crash and not the terrorists?
