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.
