Two ceremonies drew large crowds to honor 9-11 victims on this 19th anniversary of the terror attacks in New York City.

At the 9-11 Memorial, family members who lost loved ones turned out in droves. They wore face coverings and brought flowers and pictures of their loved ones who had been killed.

A recording of the victims’ names was played because of coronavirus concerns. “Paul James Bataglia, W.  David Bauer.”

Blocks away a charity foundation holding a similar ceremony insisted the names be read with cleaning of the microphones in between speakers.

“My brother Dennis Michael Edwards. As Macklemore says, 'I heard you die twice. Once when they put you in the grave and once when they stopped mentioning your name.' We will never stop mentioning your name.”
