Taking a Moment to Remember

There is a sacredness in tears. They are not the mark of weakness, but of power. They speak more eloquently than ten thousand tongues. They are messengers of overwhelming grief...and unspeakable love. --Washington Irving

Taking a moment this day...
a memorial moment
a remembering moment
a prayerful moment say we will not forget.

September 11, 2001

The following list links to tributes, photo galleries and lasting images of that tragic, heartbreaking day just nine short years ago:

The Washington Post Magazine: "This special issue is a meditation, in a few pictures and words, on what has happened to us all since the morning of 9-11. Many of the photographs are from The Post's prize-winning staff; the captions are by staff writer Tamara Jones. We have sought to step back from the events themselves, to capture the human face of the tragedy and its aftermath, and to produce a modest tribute to the living and the dead."

Christopher Casciano: "Look elsewhere for words. I have not yet found any that does what I saw justice."

Make History: "Make History is a collective telling of the events of 9/11 through the eyes of those who experienced it, both at the attack sites and around the world."

A Time Magazine Exclusive: "Shattered--A remarkable collection of photographs by photojournalist James Nachtwey."

World Statesmen. org: "September 11, 2001--In Honor of the Victims and the Heroes," including a timeline.

And a touching YouTube tribute posted by Sandra Heska King, "Words Then--and Now." It's one that will trigger the tears anew.
