THE BRONX - President Barack Obama's visit to Ground Zero is stirring up many emotions for those who lost family members on Sept. 11.

Jack Lynch, whose firefighter son Michael Lynch was killed in the terrorist attacks, says the pain of losing a child never goes away, but thinks the death of Osama bin Laden has brought him some closure.

"I wasn't a great Obama lover - I'll be honest with you," Lynch says. "But now with this occasion I think he acted magnificently: he made the tough choices, he made the courageous choices and I'm very grateful to him for that."
