This undated family photograph shows Jupiter Yambem during his marriage to Nancy, center. Jupiter was a banquet manager in the Windows on the World restaurant atop one of the towers, and was originally from the small northeastern Indian state of Manipur. His brother, Yambem Laba believes the U.S. had no choice but to wage war and hunt for Osama bin Laden. "The WTC attack was the spark and the flame was the war," he says. Each anniversary, up to 150 family members and friends honor Jupiter's memory with a Hindu lunch, prayer ceremony and floral offerings to his portrait. With bin Laden's recent death, this year's gathering will be special, Laba says. "The aftereffect of 9/11 is that the war on terrorism took a different turn," Laba says. "Earlier you could say one man's terrorist is another man's freedom fighter, but that no longer held true." (AP Photo)
