Ron Onesti: 9/11 seems like it happened yesterday

Fifteen years later, and 9/11 still seems like it happened yesterday. As I have for about 20 years, I was again involved with producing the Hoboken Italian Festival two weeks ago in New Jersey, just across from the Manhattan skyline. This year I directed everyone's attention beyond the stage, across the Hudson River, to the two light beams emitting from where the Twin Towers once stood. The "Tribute in Light" shined brightly, against a clear night's sky, with hundreds of people reflecting within a sea of brief silence. It was moving, poignant and powerful.
