KOTW takes a moment to reflect upon the events of 9/11 eleven years ago. Local ceremonies commemorated the events of 9/11/01. Every adult remembers where they were when they heard or saw the events unfold before them. Today the weather was much like it was eleven years ago which made one reflect even more on how a terrorist act turned a beautiful feeling of a crisp Fall day into something totally different. The New York Times photographer brought to the world the reflections of a Kearny Firefighter as he awaited the official ceremony. The human aspect of the firefighter's reflection captured in the picture demonstrates the impact on all that remember 9/11 today.
