Today is the 16th anniversary of 9/11 attacks in New York City. There will be a memorial service outside Police Headquarters and Portsmouth City Hall at 8:46 this morning. Of course that’s the time the first plane hit the World Trade Center towers. Portsmouth Chief of Police Robert Merner, who was at Ground Zero in New York within hours of the attack, and worked there for many days, will speak at the memorial service this morning. If you attend, you’re encouraged to take a flower or bouquet of any type to lay at the foot of the 9/11 Steel Artifact.

If you didn’t know, Portsmouth was directly impacted by the 9/11 attacks by the loss of American Airlines co-pilot Tom McGuinness. Tom was a Portsmouth resident, and he was flying American Airlines flight #11, the first plane flown into the tower.

Whether you attend or not, just take a few minutes, and acknowledge the loss of Tom, the country and the victim’s families, mark the day, and remember.
