Ceremonies mark 9/11 anniversary(1)

2005-09-12 00:00

  NEW YORK(AP)—— America mourned the victims of September 11 on Sunday as the siblings of the deceased read their loved ones' names and offered messages of remembrance to a weeping crowd at the site where the World Trade Center once stood.

  One by one, the names of the dead echoed across the site where the twin towers collapsed four years ago in a nightmarish cloud of dust and debris.

  Relatives in the crowd bowed their heads and sobbed as speakers uttered brief, personal messages to the brothers and sisters they lost, many voices breaking in sorrow.

  "Mom and Dad ache for you every minute," Linda Giammona-Julian said to her brother, Vincent Giammona, one of 343 firefighters killed. "We love you and we miss you; til we meet again."

  As the names were read, weeping mourners filed down a ramp to a reflecting memorial pool at the floor of the site, which remains virtually empty four years after the attack killed 2,749 people and tore a hole in the New York skyline. Families filled the water with red, orange and yellow roses, some shaking as they inscribed dedications on the wooden edge of the pool.
