The 9/11 tributes

The tributes yesterday that got me the most were the simplest ones. A single white candle burning in Woodruff Library. The victims' names on the crawl on CNN.

Yet I did see one that I think was clearly over the top, and yet... It was a CNN story on a woman who had her baby days after her husband was killed in the WTC. At the end of the segment, the nearly 1-year-old girl was looking at a video of her father and saying "Dada."

I thought it was exploitative. And yet, I cried and I cried and I cried.
