On Saturday in rural western Pennsylvania, more than 4,000 people began to tell the story again.
Ware, whose home was rocked when the jet crashed two miles away, recalled how hundreds of people flocked to the site in the days afterward to leave their own mementos and memorials. She began volunteering after finding one along the side of the road _ a red rose placed atop a flight attendant's uniform.
"I wanted something that would reach out to people, that people would not forget," Lasher said of the memorial, which has since become a local landmark. "When people drive by here, I want them to envision what this country has been, for all its greatness, and that we should not forget the people who were lost that day and in all the wars, because they died defending what it represents."
They were "ordinary people given no time at all to decide and they did the right thing," he said. "And 2,500 years from now, I hope and pray to God that people will still remember this."
In the years since, Lim said he has wrestled with survivor's guilt, realizing the last of those he'd urged ahead of him were crushed when the tower collapsed. He took shelter in selective memory, visualizing the ground covered with women's shoes amid the destruction.
But much of the weight of this year's ceremonies lies in what will largely Nike Long Sleeve Crop go unspoken the anniversary's role in prompting Americans to consider how the attacks changed them and the larger world and the continuing struggle to understand 9/11's place in the lore of the nation. "These anniversaries are particularly critical in figuring out what story to tell, in figuring out what this all means.
A changed America Marking 10 years since 9 11 attacks
The Pennsylvania memorial park is years from completion. But the dedication and a service to mark the 10th anniversary of the attacks are critical milestones, said Sally Ware, one of the volunteer "ambassadors" who has worked as a guide at the site since the disaster.
They will gather to pray in cathedrals in our greatest cities and to lay roses before fire stations in our smallest towns, to remember in countless ways the anniversary of the most devastating terrorist attacks since the nation's founding, and in the process mark the milestone as history itself.
On Sunday, for all the magnitude of the attacks, some of the most powerful ceremonies will likely be the smallest and most personal.

Many who died were citizens of other countries. And the attacks set in motion a decade of wars, more terrorist attacks in Europe and Asia and a worldwide law enforcement offensive that has netted tens of thousands of suspected terrorists.
As in earlier observances, bells will toll again to mourn the loss of those killed in the attacks. Americans will lay eyes on new memorials in lower Manhattan, rural Pennsylvania and elsewhere, concrete symbols of the resolve to remember and rebuild.
"That's how I got through that, because what was attached to the shoes was a lot worse," Lim said.
At the dedication of the Flight 93 National Memorial near the town of Shanksville, former presidents George W. Bush and Bill Clinton and Vice President Joe Biden joined the families of the 40 passengers and crew aboard Flight 93 who fought back against their hijackers.
They include the names of 37 of Lt. Lim, assigned to patrol the trade center with an explosives detection dog, rushed in to the north tower after it was hit to help evacuate workers. He and a few others survived despite still being inside a fifth floor stairwell when the building fell.
"It really bothered me. I thought someone has to take care of this," said Ware, whose daughter is a flight attendant. Now, a decade later, she said the memorial may do little to ease the grief of the families of those who died in the crash. But the weekend's ceremonies recall a story with far broader reach.
In Newtown, Conn., retired American Stock Exchange floor broker Howard Lasher planned a ceremony Sunday morning under the canopy of six maple trees standing alongside his gravel driveway; their trunks are painted to resemble an American flag.
When it happened, talking about the events of that day "wasn't easy for me. This was very difficult. But it became . a catharsis," he said. "What I want is for people to remember what happened."
"The moment America's democracy was under attack our citizens defied their captors by holding a vote," Bush said. "The choice they made would cost them their lives."
"It forces people to figure out what happened to us," he said.
The passengers and crew gave "the entire country an incalculable gift: They saved the capital from attack," an untold amount of lives and denied al Qaida the symbolic victory of "smashing the center of American government," Clinton said.
Lasher commissioned the painting in the weeks just after Sept. 11, 2001, as a tribute to nine Amex colleagues and the son of another who died inside the Nike Coat Jd

And then, one by one, the reading of the names of the 2,977 killed on Sept. 11 _ in New York, at the Pentagon and in rural Pennsylvania.
The 10th anniversary has forced Lim to revisit an experience he's worried too many people have pushed from their minds. But the approach of Sunday's ceremonies has convinced him of the value of revisiting Sept.11, both for himself and others.
And in Brown City, Mich. _ with a population of about 1,300 and no direct connection to the attacks _ firefighters plan to lay 343 roses on a 15,000 pound steel beam salvaged from the World Trade Center, in honor of their New York City brethren who perished in the disaster.
The ceremonies honor those who "fought the first battle against terrorism _ and they won," Ware said. "It's something I don't want Nike Sportswear Pullover
