September 11th 2001


11 years ago, I was awoke by my room mate bursting through the door. He told me that an airplane had just struck the World Trade Center. I was in College in Ohio but being from Long Island, I was immediately concerned. We turned on the television to see the image of the First Tower Falling and all of Manhattan shrouded in dust and debris. My roommate and I sat in silence for what seemed like eternity. I couldn’t believe what I had just witnessed.

As I wandered around campus, despite all the confusion and anger I found an overwhelming sense of community and connection with everyone. There were groups of people all over campus sitting and talking, crying and questioning, quiet and somber.

2 months later when I first returned home and visited Ground Zero for the first time, everyone there shared the same look. The look of disbelief and pain. How could this have happen. The City that I grew up around, that was labeled cold and rude was now connected and caring. Everyone was affected. Everyone knew someone that …

Never had I experienced that feeling of Unity. No Team I ever played for. No Group I was ever a member of. This one event, this tragedy of epic proportions brought people of all different walks of life closer. It was through this event that we found our strength. A bond that was greater than we had ever imagined.

It is in honor of this that we train today. It is in honor of the men and women who have lost their lives. It is in honor of the families and friends who have lost their loved ones. It is in honor of the bond we share and the Unity we have that we train today.

We are a new gym and many of you are just starting to meet one another but over time we hope to forge those bonds of friendship and forge a unity amongst all of us to reach remarkable levels of success both in the gym and out.
