Remembering Senator Frank Lautenberg

Sadly, we lost a champion for the 9/11 community with the recent death of Senator Frank Lautenberg. After 9/11, he relentlessly pushed for higher spending on homeland security and on the Tenth Anniversary he sponsored legislation calling for a national moment of silence to honor the victims. Most importantly, Senator Lautenberg was always available to listen to our concerns. I have fond memories of my last conversation with him while traveling from Washington DC on the Amtrak train.
