Let's Begin Rick Leventhal was also here with us at ground zero tell us about ceremony -- it.
John -- we've had ten years as the 9/11 attacks and -- ceremonies marking the anniversary.
Of those attacks and this one perhaps more profound and more beautiful than any that we have seen so far in large part because of the progress that they've made.
At the site of the World Trade Center just over the last few years as we listened to more than names being read by family members of the victims who.
Get up and groups of two and read groups of names of course ending.
With the loved one that they lost and then setting out a personal messages they read that name.
We also heard some music from.
-- violinist Yo-Yo mind from Paul Simon and James Taylor and we heard word from some dignitaries including.
Mayor Michael Bloomberg who reflected on those who lost their lives.
They -- our neighbors.
Our husbands wives Brothers sisters children and parents.
They were the ones who rushed in to help.
And of course what makes this year different is that the September 11 memorial is now open here.
On the plaza.
Where the buildings once stood there are trees there's -- There walkways and there are those two beautiful waterfalls that have been built in the footprints of the former Twin Towers and that's where many of these family members are going after they.
Hear their loved ones names being read they walk over there to that you -- -- and they pay their respects to those they law.
I remember that first year than reading of the names help profoundly moving it was what what a simple idea and yet what an eloquent one.
The reading of those names try to remember.
The people we lost that day and to keep -- -- from forgetting that there.
Absolutely and you know Americans do have a short memory all of us do we try to put things behind -- especially that things that we don't like to think about but.
On this day if no other there is room to look back at some of the things that we saw and witness on the streets of lower Manhattan after the planes hit those towers.
Take a look.
We're on were on church street we're not sure what happened.
There's been a huge explosion and everyone's running for their lives literally police.
I see a woman pushing a baby carriage.
That was then and this is now and of course John we're still under heavy security here in lower Manhattan would.
Word of yet another possible credible -- the terror threat.
But so far things have progressed here rather smoothly.
