9/11 CARTOONS: Rendering a national tragedy

PUTTING PEN to national tragedy is not easily — or eloquently — done.

Since the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon, and aboard Flight 93 that went down in Shanksville, cartoonists have tried to reflect our long national mourning with sobbing Statues of Liberty, and weeping eagles, and shadows in the shapes of the twin towers.

Today, amid my own marking of the tragedy, I looked at scores and scores of “Sept. 11” cartoons. Here — for reasons that don’t require articulation — is the cartoon that has most resonated with me today.

Never forget, indeed.
