On September 5, 2003 PBS's Religion and Ethics Newsweekly ran a lead story on the lasting spiritual impact of the Sept. 11 attacks in New York City. Kim Lawton reported: "There's not much to see at ground zero these days -- a gaping construction site that locals call 'the pit.' Still, thousands of tourists visit the site every day. In the surrounding neighborhoods, many New Yorkers say they're tired of dwelling on the events of 9/11. But religious leaders here say the lingering impact is inescapable."
