At A Brooklyn Cemetery, A Place Of Work — And An Enduring Memorial

After Isaac Feliciano's wife was killed on Sept. 11, he kept going to work at the cemetery, where he's been for 21 years. These days it's also a return to his own "ground zero": his wife's gravesite.

Zainab Abbas, husband Ahmed Hadi Jawad and their surviving daughter, Rawan, show photos of 10-year-old Zainab and 9-year-old Haider. The two children perished after a wave swept over their boat crossing the Aegean last week — the same boat carrying 3-year-old Aylan Kurdi and his family. Alice Fordham/NPR hide caption
