HPSC Remembers Those Lost In Terror Attacks Of September 11, 2001

     Everyone knows where they were and what they were doing on Sept. 11, 2001.

     In rememberance of this sad day in America, the History and Political Science Club gathered for a meeting to reflect on the events of 11 years ago.

     The meeting started off with club adviser, Professor Jonathan Moschberger introducing a video titled "9/11 Tribute: CNN America Remembers."

    "We do this every year. This is a tradition in memory of this day and the lives lost," Moschberger said.

     As the meeting continued, it was discussed how this day may have been much more tragic for Brookdale students, living on the east coast and being so close to New York.

     As the movie began to play, it brought back memories for many students, both young and old.

     After the video, the silence that had fallen over the room was finally broken when HPSC President Donna Kosenko told a story of her own experience. A few weeks prior to the tragic events, she and a friend were sitting on the beach at Sandy Hook with her friends' children just enjoying the day. Her friend then gathered her children and pointed to the Twin Towers stating that was where their father worked. From that moment on, the skyline standing before them would be forever altered.

     Kosenko said "All I could think of was that moment with my friends' children and I hoped her husband was okay."

     Unlike many unfortunate souls in this situation the husband survived. It may still be hard for America to recall this day, and though we have moved on, we will never forget this moment in history.
