BREAKING NEWS: DCCC RECOGNIZES PERRY GERSHON AS PART OF "RED TO BLUE" PROGRAM

We owe it to them

When plans for the Twin Towers were revealed in 1964, their 110-story design and ambitious construction plan represented the best of our American spirit — audacity, innovation, and perseverance.

Their completion was a triumph of persistence, problem-solving, and collaboration.

When they fell the morning of September 11, 2001, that same spirit was embodied by the first responders, many of whom were from Long Island. They rushed into Manhattan to work tirelessly to aid the injured and search for the missing.

Some of those responders weren't able to come home. Many still live here.

We owe it to those heroes, both lost and living, to strive to match the high standards they've set for character and care of the community. I've been reflecting today on what more I can do to give back.

While the original Twin Towers fell 17 years ago, One World Trade Center, also known as the "Freedom Tower," and a revitalized Lower Manhattan exist as a great symbol of our resiliency and the value of never quitting.
