GROUND ZERO, TEN YEARS LATER, SEPTEMBER 11, 2011





GROUND ZERO TEN YEARS LATER TO THE DAY:








September 11, 2011 was a long day for Americans and still as painful as this day, ten years ago.

At Ground Zero the service took place in front of the memorial where the names
of victims are carved into low walls surrounding two voids where the towers
once stood. Water cascades down the walls of each of the voids into a pool.
Some of the relatives took rubbings of their loved ones' names, while others
simply placed their hands on the carved words  Photograph courtesy of AP.
