It was a heavy and solemn day on Tuesday when the Hudson County community gathered to remember those who lost their lives during the 9/11 terrorist attacks.
On Sept. 11, clouds held back rain like guest held back tears during the memorial ceremonies. Hudson TV attended these ceremonies throughout Hudson County in towns including North Bergen, Guttenberg, Union City, and Weehawken.
Many who attended today witnessed the tragedy take place in New York from our side of the river, 17 years ago.
During the speeches, several state and local officials recalled memories of what they were doing that day, and also gave their condolences to all the friends and families who have lost loved ones on 9/11.
As generations continue, one thing remains— we will never forget.
