Church bells and sirens sounded across the city at 8:46 a.m. and 9:03 a.m., the exact minutes when planes crashed into the Twin Towers. At Ground Zero as well, a bell was chimed to mark the crashes while attendees held moments of silence. Following the bell marking the second crash, Bruce Springsteen performed his song “I’ll See You in My Dreams:”
The #911Anniversary ceremony in New York is heartbreaking to watch.
Such a long list of names being read out right now, including many by young family members who never got to meet them.
Also this Bruce Springsteen performance – so moving and apt.
