Local News

SYRACUSE, N.Y. (WSYR-TV) — Finding a sense of togetherness in tragedy. While September 11th is a day to remember those lost, it’s also another chance to appreciate those around us, to send extra love and support to our friends, family and even strangers.

A ceremony took place on Wednesday at Onondaga Community College. While most of America watched the tragedy unfold on television, one woman at OCC was there when the towers were hit. She was living and working in New York City at the time. She says in all that loss surfaced love, support, and hope.

“I think we just need to keep that memory alive and remember that time is precious and relationships are really important and we need to take care of each other,” said Rebecca Kearse, Associate VP of Student Engagement at OCC. “I think it’s a daily thing that we need to do when we wake up in the morning and when we go to bed at night, we should appreciate our loved ones and take each day as a precious moment in time. 

Taking the time to love the people around us and remember those we have lost.
