Dear brothers of the Empire District 6:


For many of us, the images and emotions of September 11, 2001, just twenty years ago, are etched in our memories forever. I was personally working nearby when the planes crushed into the twin towers, and witnessed the horror first hand. It is a day I will never forget. When we honor this day collectively, we turn terror into unity. We care for one another. We remember what unites us.


As AHEPA members, we grieve for the lives lost on 9/11 at the World Trade Center, the Pentagon and in Shanksville, Pennsylvania. We remember first responders and citizens. May their memory be eternal. We also honor members of our military who fight terrorism and advance freedom around the world.


Yesterday’s 20th Anniversary remembrance, memorial service, and inaugural lighting of the Saint Nicholas Greek Orthodox Church and National Shrine at the World Trade Center brought us all a message that light of hope will always shine brightly through the darkness of doubt and despair.


Together, we all share the weight of this day. Let’s take time today to remember what unites us. In honor of all who were lost and affected, I wish you a day of reflection, contemplation, and optimism.


Fraternally,


Dean Moskos AHEPA District 6 Governor
