In New Jersey too, friends, relatives and strangers gathered together to mourn the lives lost in the worst terrorist attacks in the history of the nation. The Garden State lost 700 lives in the attacks.
Across the state, memorial services were held for people who lost their lives on the fateful day.
Prayers were offered in Churches, Synagogues, memorial parks and football fields. 9/11 banners were put up on lamp posts and telephone poles on Church Street.
Middletown remembers the dead
In Monmouth County, 3000 people attended the Middletown Remembers September 11th ceremony.
The place was the worst hit in the state. Most of the town residents who lost their lives in the attacks worked for Cantor Fitzgerald, one of the worst hit of all the World Trade Center firms.
Executives, assistants, traders, young parents were among those whose lives, careers and dreams were so brutually cut short. Middletown honored these 37 locals 10 years after the attacks.
Even after 10 long years, the grief of those who gathered was still as intense.
Michele Nimbley visited the memorial, wiping away tears, as she remembered her father, who was one of those who lost their lives to the terrorist attacks on 9/11.
Fran Reich’s daughter lost a school friend, Joseph Chevalier. Reich visited the Memorial Garden for the Swede, who lost his life 10 years ago.
Strangers found it hard to fight emotions as they remembered the fateful day and the lives lost.
Middletown’s memorial, which was built in 2003, saw the highest turn out of mourners on the 10th Anniversary of the attacks.
