This morning while I was watching the commemoration ceremonies from the park near Ground Zero I was reminded of the horror of that day.
All the names of the dead were called and a few more were added. They were the people who died as a result of illness after their recovery and clean-up efforts. How many more will there be next year? I've also read that some contaminents escaped from the Deutsche Bank Building after the recent fire there.
The attacks lasted a few hours, but the fallout will probably last for years.
