Today marks 8 years ago when the worst terrorist attack occurred on American soil. I can remember that moment like it was yesterday, where I was, when I received the phone call about what was going on and not being able to stop watching all the news channels all day long. Nearly 3,000 people lost their lives that day. Another name is being read today, someone caught in the toxic dust when the towers collapsed, almost 8 years later, he died from lymphoma and lung disease.
My husband lost a cousin in the World Trade Center and his body was never recovered. On this day, we remember all that lost their lives, but Christopher Ciafardini, you will live in the hearts of your family always. You are gone, but will never be forgotten.
