Thousands Gather in New York to Remember Sept. 11

NEW YORK, N.Y. -- Family members read the names of their fallen loved ones one after another while thousands gathered at Ground Zero in lower Manhattan. Harrison's Margaret Scarcella toured the footprints of where the World Trade Center once stood 10 years ago to remember two lost family members.

"One senseless act, so much sorrow," Scarcella said while navigating through the area surrounding Ground Zero.

Scarcella's cousin Joe Romagnolo and brother in-law Paul M. Fiori both died in the attacks while working in Manhattan.

A 10-year anniversary ceremony Sunday morning included the opening of the 9/11 Memorial site to family members of the victims from the attacks. Others gathered outside of the site and watched family members read loved ones' names on big screens.

The city was on high alert with a greater number of police checkpoints and security awareness as officials watched to assure the ceremonies and following events were safe. Scarcella said she noticed a higher level of commotion this year when compared to the previous five years she traveled to the site.
