A quiet moment in remembrance

The World Trade Center site cleanup was ended this morning with a silent processional at 10:29am EDT. An empty flag-covered stretcher was carried out of the site, followed by the last beam that was cut down Tuesday, draped in black cloth, and placed on a flatbed trailer.

I saw a link about this ceremony on Yahoo this morning, so I turned on the TV to watch it while I got ready for work. At first I was watching ABC, but the yahoo covering it kept talking about stuff, saying very trite, shallow things that seriously detracted from the ceremony. It was a silent ceremony for a reason, after all! I switched over to NBC, which had simply a video/audio feed with no commentary, which was much better. Sigh.
