Summary, etc.:
The tenth anniversary of the attacks on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon is an occasion sure to be observed around the world. But among the memorials, political speeches, and news editorials, the most pressing consideration--and often the most overlooked--is the lives and well-being of the 9/11 first responders, their families, and the victims' families over the past decade.
