9/11 Plus 10

It's hard to gage the general feel of the 9/11 tenth anniversary here in NYC, not having lived here of late. Unfortunately, the ceremony had a Members Only feel to it since it was only open to family members- and because of ongoing construction, understood. The public was kept at considerable distance, corralled and cordoned off blocks away. Perhaps things have evolved to a more personal, individual manner of reflection here, or perhaps the general public has just moved on, as life throughout history has demanded. But I can't help shake the feeling that the city itself could have done more to include its citizenry in the commemoration of an event which so profoundly changed this city, and the world...
