From sadness to hope

There were many ways that New Yorkers did something differently, to show it wasn't just another Sunday.

Some wore badges depicting the lost landmarks.

Others put up US flags outside their home or business to show their patriotism was unbowed.

One artist expressed her feelings through an installation composed of all the office papers that landed in her apartment after the towers fell.

For 500 volunteers gathered at Nathan Straus School, the day was all about making something positive come out of the tragedy, whether that be making cards for military overseas or giving a school playground a makeover.

And a charity called Muslims Against Homeless spent the day making and distributing 1,300 meals to homeless people in New Jersey and Manhattan.

A weekend of anniversary events in the city had begun on Saturday morning, when thousands of people in white T-shirts saying "Reflect, Remember, Unite" joined hands in Battery Park, in a community event intended to show unity at the time the North Tower was struck.

Under the watchful eye of the Statue of Liberty from across the Hudson River, and within sight of the soaring new World Trade Center building, the chain of hands was a simple but powerful gesture.
