The September 11 Digital Archive – a website dedicated to saving the histories of September 11, 2001.

September 11 News.com – the Internet’s #1 resource for September 11, 2001 news.

— 9/11 Memorial – Remembering and honoring the thousands of innocent men, women, and children murdered by terrorists in the horrific attacks of February 26, 1993 and September 11, 2001.

National 9/11 Pentagon Memorial – A memorial commemorating the September 11, 2001 terrorist attack on the Pentagon and the 184 lives lost in the Pentagon and on American Airlines Flight 77.

Below are a few more photographs of the many that I have in my files. While I have some photographs which were taken at Ground Zero, I did not take any of these during my time on duty as a chaplain there. Captions precede each of this pics.
