This photo taken from the 911 museum website depicts a quote from Virgil’s poem, the Aeneid. Although critics say the quote is incorrectly used, the spirit conveys the importance of every life. It is comforting to know time will not forget us. This is significant because the greatest loss of life from this foreign attack on American soil was the rescue personnel who responded to 9-1-1.

The mysterious reflections of 9/11

"I still try to figure out what God was thinking and why I deserved to be spared twice that day."
-Kenneth Zaveckas, New York City firefighter

"The preciousness and also the precarious and vulnerable nature of the fundamental gift of life burned its way into the depth of our souls."
- "I did not see the devil's face at Ground Zero. I saw the face of God in the people working, caring, sweating, crying, rescuing, recovering and being very spiritual in their very humanness."
-Franciscan Father Joseph Bayne

"People came together in unity that day. We can all remember where we were on 9/11 because we were all together."
-Paulist Father Paul Wierichs

Fr. Barron reflects on 9/11, on anger and forgiveness.

Extra Credit Projects in Grand Rapids has produced a poster encouraging people to look back and reflect, ten years after the 9/11 attacks. The World Trade Center twin towers, absent from the skyline of New York, are still seen reflected in the water.

9-11: American Reflections - Wikipedia

The statistics of 9/11 are sobering. Nearly 300 of their brothers and sisters at Marsh & McLennan will never return home. Thousands of schools close in New York’s surrounding tri-state area, and hundreds of thousands of children are sent home. The 47 steel columns running through the 1,362 foot high towers from the North Tower and the South Tower crumble. When the jets from Flight 11 and Flight 175 hit, all 157 souls on board perish. The South Tower falls at 9:58 a.m. EST. The North Tower falls at 10:28 EST. Balls of fire erupt and burn for months.
