After over 12 years of the attack, reading these short version of life stories still touched me so deeply. The stories lets me realize that how lucky and at the same time how unfortunate these people were; inspires me to enjoy my life to its most, pursue my dream ASAP, be kind to people around you before you are not able to, and spend some money rather than save more for future (I has been a good money keeper).
Have more of "I can do it!" Attitude rather than "how about if I fail".
RIP TO ALL TH

An incredibly touching collection of portraits of those who were lost on September 11th, 2001. I have been reading a dozen or more a day since September 11th of this year (2011). I have read about 200 of the 1,910 portraits in this collection and nearly every one has brought me to tears. The portraits began as a section in the New York Times paper and then they pieced those together into this remarkable collection.

This book is a beautiful compilation of the lives of the thousands of people murdered on September 11, 2001. These first appeared in the NYT, so some photos are newspaper-grade. The bios are short but strive to be as detailed as possible, snippets that put a face on the many victims of the horrific attacks.

So heart wrenching but also touching....when I first started reading this book I could only get about 2 pages done before I had to stop because I was crying so hard couldn't see the pages anymore.It is a must for anyone who is a history buff or interested in learning more about the innocents who were murdered on 9/11.
