For the past decade, we’ve seen them in home videos and grainy photographs taken by friends and family, as well as professional portfolio pictures. Many are in uniform, while others are dressed for formal occasions or the beach. Most are smiling. Some of their faces have become familiar to us over the years because of their heroic actions on that day ten years ago. Some are heroes only to those who shared their lives.
These are the faces of the victims of September 11, 2001.
In putting together this tribute for the 10th anniversary of the terrorist attacks, I spent many hours looking through lists of victims from all three sites. I read their stories and comments made about them on memorial websites by those who loved them. With the exception of just a handful of the 80 people shown, I chose them pretty randomly. I tried to give a good representation of the age range and walks of life of the people who died that day. I hope I succeeded.
This is dedicated to all of the victims and their families. CLICK PHOTO BELOW TO VIEW VIDEO
