Under a bright sun on a chilly day, we gathered to honor those who were affected by the West Side Highway terror attack, which took place three years ago on October 31.

At 3:04 pm, the moment of the terror attack, we read out loud the messages of love, remembrance and hope, written by the loved ones of the victims. We laid wreaths and flowers, and walked along the Hudson River Greenway and esplanade between locations where lives were lost.

Our thoughts are with the victims, their families and friends, and in particular with our compatriots whose lives are irreversibly touched by this tragic event.

The Commission for Relief in Belgium was an 🇺🇸 effort to supply food to children and women in German-occupied 🇧🇪 during #WWI. In return, the US Consul in Liège at that time, Alexander Heingartner, received several handwritten letters with drawings of gratitude from 🇧🇪. children. The poignant testimonies of these children, which were found by Mr. Heingartner’s grand-daughter, Nancy Heingartner, will be exposed at📍 Global Minnesota. A virtual opening of this special exhibit will take place on Monday 12th, at noon.

Today, Belgian Minister of Foreign Affairs and Defense Philippe Goffin @philippegoffin.be and US Ambassador to Belgium Ronald Gidwitz signed a “preclearance” agreement. Once the program is operational, this will allow passengers boarding flights from Brussels Airport to the United States to clear U.S. customs and immigration prior to embarkation in Brussels, and to save time upon arrival.

Brussels will be the first location for U.S. preclearance operations in mainland Europe. This agreement will further strengthen the already substantial trade and investment between 🇧🇪 🇺🇸 and promote Brussels airport as a transatlantic hub.
