Looking Into the Past: Girl Turns Away from Watching the World Trade Center Burn, Brooklyn Promenade, September 11, 2001

At this point on that day, both planes had hit in New York, and the Pentagon was just about to be hit (or had just been hit - I can't tell the specific time from this photo). It was clear America was under attack by terrorists. What must this little girl have been feeling?
