For some thirty years most Americans lived their lives at a peaceful distance from an advancing string of attacks in places like Beirut, Lockerbie, Kenya and Yemen. For many, however, September 11th was a direct hit and awakened an intense blend of fear, pride, anger, patriotism and sorrow. The sites of the attacks, particularly the World Trade Center site, became the focus of pilgrimage for those seeking to understand, to grieve communally, or simply to see history with their own eyes.
