Listening to prayers and performances, grieving relatives sat yards away from the site of the fallen World Trade Center towers at a memorial service held on Sunday, October 28 in honor of those who lost their lives in the September 11 attacks. Afterward, mourners took flowers from the stage and handed them to firefighters, who placed the purple and yellow blooms, photographs, and flags on a make-shift memorial in the rubble.
