The initial numbers are indelible: 8:46 a.m. and 9:02 a.m. Time the burning towers stood: 56 minutes and 102 minutes. Time they took to fall: 12 seconds. From there, they ripple out. (NYMag)

The Lake Worth High School Band walked down Lake Avenue from the High School with all their instruments to City Hall to be a part of the 9/11 ceremony today. They all wore black and performed The Start Spangled Banner under the direction of Daniel Harvey, Band Director.
