Another Anniversary

Fifteen years after 9/11, timeless truths endure.

Here, on the eve of the 15th anniversary of 9/11, New York seems a city strangely at peace. The physical wounds of that awful day have largely healed. Lower Manhattan has been made whole again. A monument to the dead stands where the Twin Towers of the World Trade Center once stood. A new office building rises from the rubble of Ground Zero. The long-delayed transportation hub is open and millions of people pass through it every day. It took longer and cost far more than it should have, but the job got done.
