Healing at Union Square
After 9/11, Union Square became a place to gather to mourn and try to salve the psychic and emotional wound of the terror attack. At right, on Sept. 17, 2001, a woman lit a wick in a virtual cathedral of candles. A group of woman kept the candles lit at all times. Priests and monks came to hold services. Others came to engage in fiery arguments about foreign policy, war and peace. Above, after a few weeks, World Trade Center paraphernalia also began to appear in Union Square.
