At a still-smoking ruin, before a still-ravaged
military headquarters, in far-flung places still reeling
from unthinkable acts, they stopped to commemorate a
a milestone yesterday: A month had passed since
terrorists made their indelible mark.

building and the 60 passengers and crew
whose plane was taken over and crashed
by four hijackers.
"On Sept. 11, great sorrow came to our
country, and from that sorrow has come
great resolve," said President Bush.
At the World Trade Center, there was a
moment of silence at 8:48 a.m., the time
of the first attack on Sept. 11. Workers at
the massive grave paused from the
cleanup duties, took off their helmets and
joined arm in arm. "Don't look at the ter-
rorism over there, look at the heroism
over here," said Rabbi Joseph Potasnik, a
Fire Department chaplain.

"Amazing Grace" on instruments decorat-
ed with small American flags. Prayers
were offered first for the 343 firefighters
and 23 police officers lost in the attack,
and then for all the dead. So far, there are
u 422 confirmed dead and 4,815 listed as
missing. In addition, 157 people on the
two trade center jets were killed.
It was a brief service, just 15 minutes
long; the idling engines of the heavy con-
struction machinery could be heard in the
background. The 23rd Psalm was read,
and prayers were offered. At the end, the
bagpipes played "Americathe Beautiful."
The same song was sung at the Penta-
*"C . gon, along with "God Bless America."
Thousands listened as taps was played;
