World Trade Center, Pentagon Attacks

Here are some of the better articles, news reports, photo collections that I’ve seen so far. There are also personal accounts written by webloggers, too, a few of which I’m including here, too. Their accounts are incredible to read.

“I think I lost about 100 friends today. I can’t count them. I keep breaking down. I don’t think that I have ever been so sad and cried so much. I don’t know if I will ever be the same . . .”

The Morning After

Below is a photo from the Empire State Building webcam Wednesday morning as the sun rises over New York City. There’s still smoke rising up into the sky from where the World Trade Center’s twin towers once stood. Click on the photo for an enlarged view.
