Tower 2 Is Hit
9:06 am: UA Flight 175 crashes into the South Tower.  
  

The Facade Falls
The latticework facing of the south tower came tumbling to earth upon impact of the hijacked plane.


On the Run
Downtown office workers flee the clowds of smoke that swirled through the streets of lower Manhattan when the towers crumbled.



"We Will Never Forget"
Victims' families walked down a ramp into the WTC pit as the names of the dead were read by New Yorkers both famous and unknown.


Remembrances
A woman adds a flag to the wall of keepsakes, flowers, and photos left to pay tribute to those lost a year before.


A Mother Grieves
Sherri Williams holds a photo of her daughter, Catherine, a passenger on American Airlines Flight 11, which crashed into the World Trade Center last year.

September Sunset
A woman gazes on lower Manhattan from the Brooklyn Promenade on the anniversary of the attack.
ANOTHER YEAR HAS PASSED, SINCE SO MANY WERE LOST. MONDAY 9/11/13   LETS ALL JOIN TOGETHER, TAKE A MOMENT OF SILENCE FOR THOSE LOST THAT DAY, AND FOR THOSE  STILL IN THE WAR NOW AND THOSE LOST FOR OUR FREEDOM. TAKE A MOMENT OF SILENCE, LIGHT A CANDLE, WRITE A POEM TO SEND TO ALL OF THOSE BRAVE PEOPLE ON A RIBBON TIED TO BALLOONS, TO BE LET GO OFF THE MOUNTAIN AT DUSK.  THANK YOU...

9/11/13  ANOTHER YEAR HAS PASSED

MANY LOVED ONES WERE TAKEN AWAY
OUR PLANES WERE STOLEN IN FLIGHT
NO ONE ON THEM WOULD SEE THE NIGHT

INTO BUILDINGS THEY CRASHED.
ON A COURSE OF CERTAIN DEATH
MILLIONS STARED IN DISBELIEF
AT THE DESTRUCTION THEY HAD REAPED

THOUSANDS DIED AT THE HANDS OF THE DEVIL
WISHING HIM TO BURN IN HELL
HEROES BY THE HUNDREDS
WERE MADE IN THE WEEKS THAT FOLLOWED

THOUSANDS OF BODIES NEVER WERE FOUND
NOW FROM THE SITE, EVERYTHING IS GONE
ONLY MEMORIES LEFT, THERE IS NOT A SOUND

DIRTY DEEDS ARE BEING PAID BACK IN FULL
STILL THE PAIN IT DOESN'T QUELL
MANY NEW ANGELS WERE MADE THAT DAY
BY LOVED ONES SIDES THEY WILL ALWAYS STAY

LIFE GOES ON, BUT WILL NEVER BE THE SAME
THANKS TO A DEVIL GONE INSANE
HE'LL PAY THE PRICE FOR WHAT HE'S DONE
SOONER OR LATER HE WILL BE GONE

NEVER TO BE SEEN AGAIN,
BY ANY BEAST OR ANY MAN
AS HE BURNS IN FIRES THAT WILL NEVER END

SO MOVE ON WITH YOUR LIFE,
YOUR ANGELS ALWAYS BY YOUR SIDE
THEY WILL KEEP YOU FROM HARM,
IN THEIR LOVE AND IN THEIR LIGHT

THEY WILL MAKE IT POSSIBLE FOR ALL OF US TO STOP CRYING

THEY WANT YOU TO KNOW THEY ARE SAFE AND WARM

WHERE THEIR BEDS ARE CLOUDS ON HEAVENS FLOOR

HAPPY AND FREE FOR EVERMORE
