This photo speaks for itself.
Personal memorials on the fence.
Looking out, through the fence, at the void.
People are reading aloud from the New York Times Portraits of Grief book, and maybe 100 people are gathered around, listening.
Sunset at Ground Zero, 9/11/03.
Sure to delight my conservative readers, and horrify my liberal ones… :)
Another Ground Zero tribute.
There are all sorts of floral tributes down at Ground Zero.
I’m standing on almost exactly the spot where the cameraman who shot the famous video of the first plane hitting the WTC was standing on 9/11, at the corner of Church and Lispenard. The towers filled about half of the sky that you see here.
The public is lining up to ring this memorial bell in front of St. Peter’s church; I just rang it a minute ago. Couldn’t audio post it, but I did audio record it with my digital camera, and I’ll post that file later tonight. Anyway, very moving.

The bells are ringing now, to mark the moment of the first tower’s collapse. Here’s another picture that I took this morning at Ground Zero.
Alas, it looks like my Internet connection at home failed, so the webcam isn’t working. :(
I’m walking to work now. The kids reading their parents’ names are so heartbreaking. The bells ringing are surprisingly moving.
Crowd on Church Street.
