The U.S. marked the 15th anniversary of 9/11 on Sunday, with victims' relatives reading their names and reflecting on a loss that still felt as immediate to them as it.

This is a beautiful memorial however I do understand the families that do not wish to have their loved ones pictures added to the tapestry. This Sunday's football games really reminded you how we were once a country united for a brief time.

I cried for the lives lost and felt proud to be an American as I read the stories of so many heroes that day. Must see.

I can never remember what I was doing that day. I bet I ate at least 2 meals and slept at some point.

Remember how you felt that day, and how you felt during the subsequent weeks that followed as we all tried to learn more and make sense of it all.

The anniversary of 9/11 is a reminder to all Americans about our shared values, our common humanity, and our conviction that we are stronger as a nation when we stand together.

Each year we are reminded of this day of sorrow. I personally wish we had a day for all the terror attacks that have happened on US soil.

Even on a day of remembrance we are reminded how lucky we are to live in this beautiful country. The brave acts of countless Americans on that day will never be forgotten. Go USA!

We can never forget what this day did to America. It tore it apart and brought it together at the same time. To every that lost their life I know you are smiling down on us praying that we always look out for each other.

Richard McCormack snapped a picture of the two beams lighting up the night sky on Sept. 9, according to NJ.com. In the clouds where the light strikes, some say there seems to be a heavenly figure. McCormack told NJ.com that “it looks like ‘a vision of the Lord (Jesus) with his arms folded.”

A single oak leaf represents Kerene Gordon, who worked as a food handler in the World Trade Center. She is one of 10 victims of either the Sept. 11 attacks or the 1993 World Trade Center bombing whose portraits are not on display at the National September 11 Memorial Museum.

Grief is part of Fyfe Kiernan's professional life. She's a social worker, and even before 9/11 she specialized in grief and trauma after loss. Now she runs a counseling center in Newton, as well as expressive therapy programs that use music, dance, yoga and art.
