    Hundreds gathered at the tip of Hoboken’s Pier A Park on the Hudson River last night for an interfaith service to commemorating the 56 people the small city lost in the Sept. 11, 2001 terrorist attacks.

    “It’s a day that we reflect on the importance of continuing to create, build and strengthen our community so that we can keep our community safe and remain vigilant in our nation’s fight against terrorism,” Hoboken Mayor Dawn Zimmer said at the podium with the Freedom Tower catching the last rays of the day behind her across the river…

    Chabad Rabbi Moshe Schapiro said “The message of 911 is 19 individuals created such havoc by coming together and bringing the two towers down and about 3000 people lost their lives, just imagine if 19 people come together to do acts of kindness.”

    The rabbi continued saying “If bad can create so much havoc that is still etched in our hearts, how much more so is the power of good if we come together to do random acts of kindness. We would make the world a better place and that is the best way to member those that died that day.”

    During the ceremony many sat on chairs set up for the event but many also sat on the lawn at the tip of the pier. A police honor guard stood at attention and all stood as the Pledge of Allegiance was led by a boy scout and as the as the names of all the city’s lost were read.

    Megan Kelly of Hoboken sat on the stone blocks at the edge of the lawn at the ceremony. She said she was in eighth grade on Sept. 11, 2001 and two of her classmates lost relatives.

    “I was only 13 when it happened so at that time I didn’t really understand the gravity,” Kelly said. “I think it’s important to reflect on it now that I am older.”
