" Jesse " James Leija on Remembering 9/11

By John Whisler, Express News

Remembering 9/11: Today's 10th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks isn't lost on "Jesse" James Leija, who was in New York just two months before the tragedy for a fight against Hector Camacho Jr.

"Our hotel was right across the street from the World Trade Center," Leija said. "I remember going to bed at night looking up at the Twin Towers."

Watching the horrific events unfold back home, Leija said he was devastated.
He went back a year later and has visited ground zero on several other occasions, including this summer with his family. He said it still gives him goose bumps.

"Even all these years later, it's hard to believe something like that happened," Leija said.[/left]
