INDICE DE GALERIAS
NEW YORK (AP) — It’s been 12 years since his son died in the World Trade Center attacks, but Clyde Frazier says it seems like 15 minutes. He says, “Time stands still because you love your child.” He adds, “Nothing changes except he’s not here.”
Frazier was among the family members of victims who gathered at the site in lower Manhattan today on the anniversary of the attacks. Bells tolled to mark the times when the hijacked planes hit the towers, and when they fell. As has become the tradition, family members read the names of the victims, and spoke of the impact of their loss. One woman whose mother was killed said, “As time passes and our family grows, our children remind us of you.”
Loved ones were milling around the two-year-old memorial plaza, making rubbings of names and leaving flowers in memory of the victims. Some were weeping, arm in arm.
By next year, a September 11th museum is expected to be open beneath the memorial plaza. While the memorial honors those who died, the museum is intended to present a broader picture of 9/11, including the experiences of survivors and first responders.
