TheStreet's founder Jim Cramer was at 14 Wall Street (the former location of TheStreet's office) when the 9/11 attacks happened on Sept. 11, 2001.
On the occasion of the 20th anniversary, on being asked what this day means to Cramer, he said, "It means that there are a huge number of people who have been born post 9/11 that don't know about it. That's why I urge people to go to the (9/11 Memorial) Museum. They must know about it."
On Friday, Cramer also penned down an article remembering the dreadful day on his Real Money Column.
"The fear is that those too young to remember the tragic events of that day will not understand the significance of them," Cramer writes."...I have a suggestion to the leaders of a country so sadly divided. We, my generation, all knew that December 7, 1941, was a day that will live in infamy. September 11, 2001, must also be remembered as infamous even if the war still plays out with no victory 20 years later."
Earlier this morning, the New York Stock Exchange observed a one-minute moment of silence to recognize the 20th anniversary of 9/11.
The stock exchange remained closed until September 17 after the attacks.
