Foran’s Jared Hubler, who plays both receiver and defensive back, earned the Mike Miller Memorial Award. Miller, who was an impressive athlete during his time at Foran High, was killed in the terrorist attacks of 9/11 while working at the World Trade Center. He was 39.
Senators Lindsey Graham and John McCain will introduce an amendment to the Justice Against Sponsors of Terrorism Act, known as JASTA, which allows lawsuits to be filed against foreign governments complicit with terrorism, reports Reuters. The proposed amendment would allow a government to be sued only in a case in which it “knowingly” abetted a terrorist group.
On Monday, St. Nicholas Greek Orthodox Church, the only church destroyed in the terrorist attack of September 11, 2001, held a topping-out ceremony at the site of the new St. Nicholas Greek Orthodox National Shrine and raised a cross atop the new structure, reported Chris Perez in the New York Post.
Archbishop Demetrios blessed the cross with holy water and water from the National September 11 Memorial pools.
