BAYONNE, NJ – Even with the passage of 15 years, the pain is still there.

That was the sentiment at the Interfaith Memorial Service and Candlelight Vigil on Sunday, Sept. 11 at the Harbor View 9/11 Memorial Park at the Peninsula at Bayonne Harbor.

Each year the “September 11th; Bayonne Remembers” committee holds the ceremony in observance of the terrorist attacks of Sept. 11, 2001 on the World Trade Center in New York and the Pentagon in Arlington, Va. The event pays tribute to the nearly 3,000 people killed in New York, Virginia and Pennsylvania, where a commercial airplane crashed as passengers fought hijackers.

The ceremony also commemorates the Feb. 26, 1993 World Trade Center bombing. Bayonne lost 13 residents as a result of the two days of terrorist strikes.

Speakers at the service talked about an emotional pain that still persists 15 years after the attacks of Sept. 11.

“They tell us that time heals all wounds, but the pain and the sorrow are as they were the day after,” said Rev. Joseph Barbone, the final pastor at the former Our Lady of Assumption Church in Bayonne.

The 2016 memorial service and candlelight vigil can be remembered by the nearly two dozen photographs which accompany this story.
