Thousands of people will join hands to form a human chain along the waterfront in lower Manhattan beginning at 8:46 a.m., the time the first plane hit the World Trade Center on 9/11. Participation is free, but you must register so organizers may assign you to a starting location. Afterward, you may post a message on the Wall of Remembrance at Battery Park.
