What is "Ground Zero"?

by Kevin Caruso

“Ground Zero” is a term that is used quite frequently with 911, and it refers to the location in Manhattan where the World Trade Center Towers stood.

The term was originally used to describe the location where a nuclear explosion occurred, and because the devastation was so great at the World Trade Center location, many people, including reporters, started using the term to refer to the devastated area of Manhattan.

“Ground Zero” is now a sacrosanct term. We use it to remember 911 and the pain and losses that were experienced in Manhattan.

I use the term with reverence. I always think of the angels who we lost, the hero firefighters, police officer, and rescue workers; and our precious 911 survivors.
