"Their lives mattered, and still matter to us today"

In the video below, Gov. Christie formally opens New Jersey's 9/11 memorial at Liberty State Park in Jersey City. It is a compelling place, and it has particular meaning for the governor -- whose wife was two blocks from Ground Zero on the morning of the attacks.

In the video below, Gov. Christie formally opens New Jersey's 9/11 memorial at Liberty State Park in Jersey City. It is a compelling place, and it has particular meaning for the governor, whose wife was two blocks from Ground Zero on the morning of the attacks. The state's political leadership was there this morning, as were thousands of New Jerseyans who lost someone in the attacks.  

"Their lives mattered, and still matter to us today," Christie said. "That's why we built this memorial...We will never leave them, and we will never, ever, forget."

I wrote about the memorial, and Christie's connection to Sept. 11, in Friday's paper. Click here for that story.
