The 9th Anniversary of the September 11 attacks is upon us, and organizers have scheduled the Sheepshead Bay 9/11 Memorial and Candlelight Vigil for tomorrow, 6:30 p.m., rain or shine.

Attendees are gathering in the Bill Brown Park handball court at Avenue X and Bedford Avenue, in front of the memorial wall painted by Rockin’ Fay Fiore, which features the names of locals who perished during the tragic event nine years ago.

On a personal note, much has happened over the past year to inflame tensions in the community. But September 11 is a day that I would hope we can all put aside our differences and come together as neighbors to honor those who have fallen. I’ll be at the memorial and I hope to see many of you there, too.
