I think this just for the families who lost people at the WTC.

Yes, that's the first thing I noticed. At least she isn't on the dais. Perhaps she realized she would get booed at this memorial service, too.

They are still pooring water on the site. I can't believe it's still burning. It's been 7 weeks. We need to keep praying for the survivors.

But she is sitting in front of Schumer. So I guess that should make her happy. Yesterday was her birthday you know, and the impeached ex president and his daughter are in Madrid. Hmmm, I wonder if she had a happy birthday.

Who was that policeman who sang the national anthem? He has a voice as good as any of the three tenors. Also done without accompaniment, and stayed on key and did not mug for the camera or re-do the arrangement. Voice very clear and beautiful (tenor).

The policeman is Officer Rodiquez. He has been an acting ambassador for the department and singing the national anthem at several events. He has a wonderful voice.

I love him too, and "Ave Maria" always makes me cry anyway! :(

"I can't believe it's still burning"

I could see the hoses still going on Friday. It just won't stop. If you could only see the flatbed trucks coming out with the twisted steel girders on them... twisted like pretzels...

I started a job on the AMEX after the attack, and it is just horrible being near the site. I try to go out and look at it at least for a few minutes every day, but the smell is a constant reminder. Something in the air down there still stinks.

I think that the core temp is still 1600 degrees.

This prayer is giving me the creeps. I don't think it should, but it does.

He sang the National Anthem at 3 or 4 Yankee playoff games this month. It was always very moving.

Not to be outdone, the Diamondbacks had Jewell do it last night for Game 1 of the World Series. Barf.

I CAN NOT BELIEVE THE NYPD HAVE A MUSLIM ON THAT STAGE !

With apology to no one, his presence must be a slap in the face
to most all in that crowd with a dead loved one in the rubble.

and now, as he finished his 'prayer', the crowd seem noticable underwhelmed.

Do you have Andrea Bocelli's "Sacred Arias"? It has Ave Maria by both Bach and Schubert. Amazing.

"I think that the core temp is still 1600 degrees. "

I was talking to two FDNY ambulance men the other day and they said it was still a "boot burner".

If you can possible get down there, I see you're from Michigan, you should see it. Talk to the people who work down there who ran for their lives. TV doesn't do the scene justice. Its just unbelievable.

Rabbi Joseph Patasnick was just on. He was a dear friend of Father Mike. I believe he is now the head of the NYFD chaplins.

I have friends who were there the day after the tragedy. They told me things that will never leave my brain. I can't even look at pictures of the WTC without crying. The opening of Sex and the City has the WTC twice and I just totally lost it.

what wahoo says is the absolute truth.

the dust of the dead is still in the air.

i inhaled the remains of some of them in a five hour
walk through lower manhattan on september 30.

as no amount of national geographic browsing can prepare one
for the magnificence of the rocky mountains,
so can no tv camera convey the atrocity that we have suffered.

I just saw him, too. At first I thought he was walking as if he was stiff, and then I realized he was trying to go slow because of Laura's mother. What a nice man! (Barney and Spot were also sighted.)

I've had 4 different jobs within a few blocks over the years, including one in one of the towers. I miss the old view of the skyline from the roof of my father's apartment too. Anything less than a total rebuilding will seem like a defeat to me.

Stay strong! For the most part, we're holding up over here. Life, and the finance biz in particular, goes on! Every day I consider walking by the site to go to work a little slap at the terrorists.

I'm going back to NYC on vacation on March 16 and it is in our plans to go to Ground Zero and pay our respects. We will also visit that church nearby that survived without a scratch. We were just there this past July...so innocent and carefree.

It does sound especially written for today. Especially " No child was born to hate", but then again who knows, all ALW songs sound the same.

I am glad that Franklin Graham mentioned George W Bush.

How strange...they're playing Barber's "Adagio for Strings." This song flashed into my head when it was all happening on September 11 and I've played it several times since.

Oh my gosh, I love this song. Samuel Barber is a fabulous composer. I want to call this Allegro for Strings. I think that's it but I am too lazy to go check my CDs.

It sounded as if ALW re-worked part of "The heart is Slow to Learn" to make that song.

Did anyone else get tears while listening to Franklin's prayer?

"We will also visit that church nearby that survived without a scratch"

There are 2 that I know of that are pretty close. The one that I now pass regularly is the final resting place of Alexander Hamilton. He's about 4 or 5 feet from the sidewalk on Rector street. There is still dust on the graveyard grass. Poor guy must be doing spins in his coffin.
