With no shortage of ways to remember the terrible events of September 11th, 2001, I’d like to recommend one you may have missed: “In Pictures,” a comprehensive photo memorial built by the New York Daily News for the 10th anniversary of the attacks that is, of course, still moving and relevant today.
Comprising images captured by the paper’s photo staff, the feature presents a unique opportunity to experience the fall of the World Trade Center as so many New Yorkers did. There are astonishing stories caught in every click of the shutter.
Of course, much of the content is difficult or disturbing, but there are moments of sheer inspiration as well: the “Memories live on in the streets of New York” slideshow presents an artistic response to tragedy, and “Forever loyal: Dogs search for survivors” displays an awe-inspiring rescue effort that I never knew about. Don’t miss it.
Just found the worst page in the entire dictionary. What I saw was disgraceful, disgusting, dishonest, and disingenuous.
