Suria Rachel Emma Clarke was 30 years old and from Brooklyn, New York. (Born: Sheffield, England). Suria worked for Cantor Fitzgerald on the 105th floor of the North Tower at the World Trade Center.

At 8.30am on September 11, 2001, Suria emailed a friend to fix a lunch date. Sixteen minutes later, the first plane crashed into the North Tower 20 floors below her. There was no escape.

"I knew that somewhere in that was my daughter, but I was there six weeks later, staying in a hotel way up in New York, but you could see the steam and the smoke still rising from there, so the temperature levels down below would have been very, very high. Science just told you. Things went straight down the middle and would have been going down through a gigantic coffee grinder and then been being cooked, really, I suppose." (Suria's father, John).

During the chaos of the 9/11 attacks, where almost 3,000 people died, nearly 100 loyal search and rescue dogs and their brave owners scoured Ground Zero for survivors.

Now, ten years on, just 12 of these heroic canines survive, and they have been commemorated in a touching series of portraits entitled 'Retrieved'.

The dogs worked tirelessly to search for anyone trapped alive in the rubble, along with countless emergency service workers and members of the public.

In Memory of Gary Jay Frank

Gary Jay Frank was 35 years old and from South Amboy, New Jersey. (Born: Plainview, New York). Gary worked for Aon Insurance Co. on the 92nd floor in the South Tower of the World Trade Center.

Gary's two sisters Felicia and Laurie have come to the World Trade Center every September 11th for the commemorative ceremony. With them they carry the same missing person's poster they've carried for the past decade.

"We will never forget you," reads the poster for Gary Frank, whose remains have never been found.

"Gary was my father. He had the biggest heart ever. He was funny and very outgoing, not to mention very smart. Everybody loved him very much, as did I. He taught me how to ride a 2-wheel bike. I remember on our weekends together, it was our ritual to go and see a movie and go out to dinner, whatever one I wanted. We had many, many trips to Six Flags. On one occasion, when we got there so early, we got to go on Medusa 3 times with no line. I always had a huge love for professional wrestling, and, sure enough, one day daddy said "You're going to raw!" And he took me to my first and since then only live event. His last Christmas and New Year's here, he took me to Disney World in Florida." Jessika Frank.

In Memory of Betty Ann Ong

In Memory of Betty Ann Ong

Betty Ann Ong was 45 years old and from San Francisco, California. Betty was a flight attendant on American Airlines Flight 11.

On September 11, 2001, shortly after the takeoff of American Airlines Flight 11 from Logan Airport in Boston, Massachusetts bound for Los Angeles, California, the airplane was hijacked.

During the hijacking, Betty placed a call to American Airlines reservation agents in Raleigh-Durham, North Carolina and relayed vital information about the identities of the hijackers and the hijacking situation on board the airplane. Betty's telephone call was the first call and indication that America was under attack, and her call eventually led to the shutdown of all flights nationwide. Under extreme duress and horrific circumstances, Betty remained calm and professional during her 23 minute telephone call. Prior to the crash of the airplane at the North World Trade Center in New York, Betty selflessly asked the ground crew to "Pray for Us", and not just for herself.

At 8.46am on September 11, 2001, American Airlines Flight 11 crashed into the northern facade of the North Tower of the World Trade Center.

Remembering 9/11 Around The World


President Obama and first lady Michelle Obama arrived at Ground Zero this afternoon alongside former President George W Bush and his wife Laura. There they met families of victims, with all four warmly embracing them alongside plaques bearing the names of the dead.

The 10th anniversary ceremony began with the arrival of bagpipers and drummers and the singing of the national anthem by a youth chorus. But the world fell silent at 8.46am local time for a minute's silence to remember the horrific moment American Airlines Flight 11 hit the North Tower.

It was followed by President Obama's reading from Psalm 46, which begins, "God is my refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble".

New York mayor Michael Bloomberg then introduced the reading of the names of each of the 2,983 people who died in the attacks.

After the New York ceremony President Obama flew to rural western Pennsylvania to remember the sacrifice of those on United Airlines Flight 93.


Many of the families of the 67 British victims who died in the 9/11 attacks have attended services in London and New York.

Members of around 30 families who lost loved ones in the twin towers took part in a ceremony at the American Embassy in central London, while members of another 10 families took part in the service at Ground Zero.

Speaking at the service outside the US Embassy, the Prince of Wales said the families had to endure an "eternity of continuing, awful, agony".

"None of us will ever forget where we were or what we were doing when on that otherwise ordinary day, and out of a clear blue sky, came so much premeditated death and destruction on scale and in a way that shocked the entire world," he said.

"At the heart of those endless and rather impersonal news reports lay the shattered lives and hopes of all those who we join here today both in London and New York."

Ceremonies of remembrance also took place at Westminster Abbey and St Paul's Cathedral, while Mayor Boris Johnson unveiled a sculpted memorial, made from steel recovered from Ground Zero in Battersea Park, west London.

9/11: Americans join hands at Ground Zero to mark anniversary

Americans have begun marking the 10th anniversary of the September 11 attacks in New York, Washington and Pennsylvania.

Today as a bell tolled at 8.46am to mark the minute that the first hijacked plane flew into the Twin Towers, they joined hands in a human chain of support and commemoration along the waterfront of lower Manhattan.

Rising in front of them as they reached out to friends, neighbours and strangers, was the new World Trade Center tower, soaring into the void left that day and destined to be America's tallest building.

Sara Robb remembers 9/11

"I was at work when everything unfolded. A co-worker popped into my office and said, "A plane just hit the World Trade Center." After it all sunk in, I called the school my boys attended (8 and 10 at the time). They assured me that they would not be told what had happened. I rushed to the school before they were "let out" for the day so that I could be the one to do the explaining of what had happened.

We went home and I explained it to them the best I could. We then spent the evening watching the television. My oldest, Tom, said, "Someday I will be a Marine and I will protect America so this never happens again." It touched my heart. He'd always wanted to be a Marine (like his grandpa), but this statement was so bold and seemed to predict his future. Sure enough, 9 years later on September 10, 2010 he graduated from boot camp! Today he proudly serves with the 1/9 Marines in Afghanistan will stop to observe a moment of silence on Sunday to honor those who perished that day and those who worked tirelessly to rescue the ones they could.

God Bless America and Thank You to all those who so selflessly stand to serve and protect our great nation!"

Sara Robb (Very Proud Mom of LCpl Thomas Smith).

Marilyn Botta remembers 9/11

"I worked at the WTC (Tower One) during that time. I was not there that day, but 9 people from my company were killed. One of them was a wonderful lady named Angela and she didn't deserve to die at the age of 47.

Here is what I wrote in my Journal 10 years ago:
My world and everyone else’s is changed forever. The Twin Towers are attacked and thousands are killed. It is approximately 8:46 and I am blissfully running that morning in Georgia, when I hear on the radio that there is “something going on at the North Tower of the WTC.” They were not sure but thought that there was a fire or some sort of terrorist activity. I quickly try to think if my office is in the North or South Tower and pray that it is not the North, later I realize it is. I am shocked and almost get run over by a car when I cross the street. I am on my way back anyway and race to the house. Janet is descending the stairs and I tell her to turn on the T.V. We watch in horror as we see the gaping hole in Tower One, my building, and I almost lose it. I note that the hole is high up and hope that my co-workers will be able to get out. I think of my ex-husband who works there too. Then we see the second plane hit the South Tower and I turn to Janet and ask, innocently, “Were there people in that plane?” She says grimly, “Yes.” Before long, we watch in disbelief as the South Tower collapses. We are crying and shocked. Then about a half hour later, Tower One collapses too. I pray and pray that my friends got out. I then realize that I have not told my parents that I am on vacation – they must think I am in the building. I am frantic and Janet takes charge, calling, calling, calling, and finally gets through to my Mom, who is crying on the other line. She said she and my Dad thought I was dead. Janet finally gets through to Mark who says he didn’t even go into work that day – he had a doctor’s appointment that morning. He said he didn’t know anything about other friends in the building and he would contact me later in the day. We sit and watch all day long, shocked and numb, but yet unable to tear ourselves away from the T.V. The disbelief is palpable and I feel that I am in a dream state. We cancel the trip to Hilton Head. We finally decide to go out to dinner and wherever we go, we cannot escape the horror. It is all over the T.V. and I am totally amazed that some people seem to be going about their business as if nothing has happened. I feel compelled to tell people that I used to work at the WTC. I eat but barely taste the food and feel guilty that I am even able to eat at all.

Mark calls me later in the evening to tell me Angela, our friend, his close friend – did not come home at all and nobody can get in touch with her. Elliot thinks she is dead. I am shocked and sick, sick, sick. I go to bed and pray but, in my heart, I know she is gone."

Marilyn Botta.

Red - A Canine hero of 9/11

While there were hundreds of human heroes in the days following the September 11 attacks, there were four legged heroes too. The dogs who searched for survivors and bodies in the rubble of buildings and planes. There were over 300 canine search and rescue teams who worked in the days and weeks following September 11, 2001.

Red, a 12 year-old labrador who searched the rubble of the Pentagon with her handler, is among those now retired as an active search dog. Her legs are not as spry as they once were but in her temperament Red still appears to have that same devotion to the search.

Not long after American Airlines flight 77 crashed into the Pentagon on September 11, Red was at work. She was only 18 months old, yet she discovered dozens of bodies.

In Memory of Welles Remy Crowther

In Memory of Welles Crowther

Welles Remy Crowther was 24 years old and from Upper Nyack, N.Y. Welles worked for Sandler O'Neill and Partners on the 104th floor in the South Tower of the World Trade Center.

Witnesses report that after United Airlines Flight 175 hit the South Tower, Welles Crowther, with a red bandanna covering his mouth and nose to protect him from the debris, re-entered the building at least three times to rescue people. He is directly responsible for saving the lives of at least 12 people.

Among those rescued include Judy Wein and Ling Young, the latter of whom keeps a picture of him in her house. Welles, with members of the FDNY, had been on their way back up the South Tower when it collapsed.

Welles Crowther's body was found 6 months later on March 19, 2002 on the side of the lobby of the South Tower of World Trade Center.

Below is Welles Crowther's complete 9/11 story, taken from the Welles Remy Crowther Charitable Trust website.

"On September 11, 2001 when the attacks on the World Trade Center began, Welles was no longer an equities trader. He became a firefighter.

Through telephone calls, Welles was known to have been in his office at approximately 9:00 AM.

However, he was recovered on March 19, 2002 along with NYFD firefighters and emergency services personnel who had been operating a NYFD Command Center in the lobby of the South Tower.

Welles' final hour remained a mystery until an article about September 11th printed in The New York Times (5/26/02) mentioned eyewitness reports of a mysterious man in a red bandanna on the 78th floor Sky Lobby of 2 World Trade Center when the second plane crashed into the south tower.

This is where Welles was likely to have been at that time, since he was ultimately able to get down to the main lobby before the tower collapsed.

Eyewitnesses reported that, after the plane had hit into the Sky Lobby, a man suddenly appeared "out of nowhere". He was stripped to his T-shirt and wearing a red bandanna to cover his nose and mouth, protection against the smoke and debris.

This man organized a rescue effort on the floors high above where the official rescue workers were able to reach. He called for fire extinguishers, he found and directed dazed and confused victims to the only stairwell that was open for escape, and he carried a woman down to the 61st floor, then returned to the 78th floor to rescue more people. He turned back up once again after bringing the second group of survivors down.

Eyewitnesses report that the man spoke calmly, with authority, and was obviously well trained. He is reported to have saved many lives that day.

Knowing that her son always carried a red bandanna in his back right pocket, Welles' mother believed that the description of the mysterious man fit her son: his character, his training and his likely location at the time. She sent recent photographs of her son to the eyewitnesses.

The witnesses confirmed that Welles Crowther was the "Man in the Red Bandanna" who helped to save their lives and others on September 11th.

The Crowther Family ultimately learned, almost 3 years later, that Welles and the members of FDNY with whom he was recovered, had been on their way back up the South Tower with a Hearst "jaws of life" tool to free victims who were trapped under debris, presumably in the Sky Lobby."

London unveils memorial for 9/11

A sculpture dedicated to those killed during the 9/11 attacks has been unveiled at a temporary location in Battersea Park, south London.

The 28ft (8.5 metre) memorial has been created from three sections of the World Trade Center buildings.

The Mayor of London, Boris Johnson, said those responsible were "sick and deluded" and called for young people to be taught the history of the events that took place a decade ago.

He was joined by former New York City Fire Commissioner Thomas Von Essen and US artist Miya Ando.
