We remember and honor 7 Cubans who perished on 9/11 at the World Trade Center

Twenty-two years ago today, nearly 3,000 people lost their lives in one of the most horrific terrorist attacks in recorded history. Over the years, it has been discovered that Al Qaeda’s attack on the Twin Towers of the World Trade Center also claimed the lives of at least 7 Cubans, all of them residents of New York and New Jersey.

We remember these victims today, along with all the others who perished on that horrendous day. Lord have mercy.
