Such a tragic day for those of you who were there. Such a beautiful picture for those of us who weren't.

Thank you Janet.

What a touching picture. Thanks for sharing.

The only problem is that you could have been 2,000 or more miles away and "been there".

I'm eternally grateful my daughter didn't accept the job in the restaurant at the top of one of the towers.

Love it! I haven't seen this one. I've been just wondering how, after all these years, I still get a lump in my throat and burning eyes on this day.

It was a day that changed me, and I'm sure many others. My heart still aches.

That is such a sad photo. I was actually teaching in an elementary school in that area on 9/11/01...

This is a very sad day. I just say RIP to all who lost their lives on that tragic day.

Thank you for sharing.

One of my first jobs was in the S. Tower. My first ride in one of those express elevators was there, too.

Nice photo.

That image captures the feeling so well.

Beautiful and so sad. When I was there this summer and last, it felt like a hole in my heart. I missed them.

Amen

I still haven't been back, my last visit was 3/01. I know I will see the image reflected in the water, I know it too well.

Thank you for the beautiful picture. I would love to share with you and your readers, the memories I have that day and a look back in time to how those beautiful towers came to be.

That winter after 9/11, one of my coworkers came in selling t-shirts to support the families of those policemen and firemen who were lost in that tragedy, people who stormed in to try to facilitate getting so many out.

Whenever I think of 9/11 (as is true when I think of the OKC bombing), I think about the many many people who risked their lives to help during and/or after these events, who sifted through dangerous debris looking for survivors, who supported those who were so badly hurt by this tragedy.

It reminds me that there are far more good people than bad, even if they don't get as much press.
