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.
