Victims of September 11 remembered in Westchester

The past week marked the second anniversary of the attacks on the World Trade Center, which claimed the lives of more than 100 Westchester residents. On Sunday, their lives were remembered in two very different, but equally moving ways.In Yonkers, people got together to make a difference in their community, building houses for those who can't afford it. Westchester residents spent the day at the Habitat for Humanity site on Walnut Street, remembering those who were lost on 9/11 by helping others in need.In Garrison, there was an entirely different commemoration. A solemn procession took place at Graymoor, led by the Westchester County Emerald Society Pipe and Drum Band. The Franciscan Friars compound is home to a World Trade Center memorial cross erected by the ironworkers of Local 40 from New York City. The memorial is made from cement and steel from the site of the towers.
