Anonymous people reflect on 9/11.
As I sat there looking at the final resting place for many of these men, I felt as if the dead were asking me not to forget them...to keep their memories with me for the rest of my life. I made them a promise that I would remember them every waking day until I finally join them. (Photo AP/Wide World Photos/Graham Morrison)

The Day Lives On
I can still smell the Trade Center sometimes-in my car, in clothes that I wasn't wearing down there. I go to my closet and put three or four jackets on before it finally doesn't smell like the World Trade Center. (Photo Willie Cirone)
