Sept. 11, 2001 hit those of us here at National Underwriter’s editorial headquarters very personally–not only because our Hoboken, N.J. office is right across the Hudson River from the World Trade Center site, and some of us rode the PATH trains to and from that station every day, but also because so many insurance people worked at that ill-fated building. What follows is the editorial we put out on the first anniversary of 9/11. Reading it over today, it still hits hard emotionally. Feel free to add any memories or comments of your own.
