This past Thursday September 8 on the corner of Central Park South and 6th Ave, the Hero Portraits September 11th Memorial was unveiled. It was the culmination of a two year effort on behalf of the Hero Portraits organization led by chairman and founder Darryl Lynn in honor of this year’s 10th anniversary of 9/11. The memorial, a 9 ft high 11ft wide structure in the shape of an American flag, held the portraits of first responders to the attack on the twin towers on September 11th 2001.
“I never really know what to say to you.”Addressing family members of the heroes of United Flight 93, former Pennsylvania Governor and Secretary of Homeland Security Tom Ridge spoke the very words that have reflected my very own thoughts for nearly the past eight years. He hit the nail on the head.
