9/11

Posted By on Mon, Sep 11, 2006 at 5:59 AM

All the major papers are covered up with 9/11 anniversary coverages. I was drawn to the NY Times' return to families with whom it spoke in "Portraits of Grief." In this highly lauded series, the Times profiled thousands of people killed in the attacks. The return has just as much human interest.

 Interviews with a sampling of them found that, while they were at markedly different stages in the healing process, many have found constructive ways of embracing life without forgetting. Widows and widowers have remarried. Children have gone on to college or begun first grade. Some people have settled into new homes, new geography. And a few, while still struggling with their loss, have arrived at surprising places that they could never have foreseen.
