Never Forget

I always thought adding this patch to the uniforms was one of the classiest things Hofstra’s ever done.

Hard to believe it’s been seven years already…and hard to believe how Sept. 10, 2001 still feels like so many more than seven years ago. And after seven years, it still feels odd to watch sports on 9/11.

Think today of the 2,998 who died in the attacks, including the 13 Hofstra graduates who perished in the World Trade Center: Lt. Glenn Wilkinson, Frederick Varrachi, Neil Levin, Alisha Levin, Edward Mardovich, Andrew Stern, Courtney Walcott, Alok Mehta, Jeffrey Dingle, Richard Fitzsimmons, Noell Maerz, Glenn Winuk and Julie Lynne Zipper.

Let's not forget, too, that there were two other planes -- not just the ones that went into the towers. I think too many people think of 9/11 as just the twin towers. The pentagon was also hit. And those heroes on the flight that went down in Pennsylvania -- who knows where that was heading.
