This image shows a cartoon entitled Liberty Mourns, which Mike Luckovich, the editorial cartoonist for the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, drew in 2001 as a commentary on the events of September 11, when the World Trade Center in New York City was attacked by members of Al Qaeda. The Statue of Liberty is depicted with a tear falling from her right eye, and the World Trade Center is reflected in her eyes. One of the towers has smoke billowing from it, and a jet airliner in flight is nearing the other.
