NORWALK, Conn. -- Lunda Asmani joined others in remembering the 9/11 terror attacks in a memorial service in front of Norwalk City Hall.

He's just four weeks into his new job as the city's director of management and budgets after moving from Newton, Kan., and vividly remembers the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks.

"(I was) was so many miles away at the time from New York in Kansas, but it was just a national tragedy," Asmani said.

He moved to the United States in 1998 from his native Tanzania to do graduate work at Wichita State and was working as an intern with a county government in 2001. Asmani and other interns were assigned to work with elementary school children in the county to help them create a mural of their art work in the weeks after the attacks.
