With the confirmed death of Osama Bin Laden, suddenly the post I was preparing for today felt insignificant. So instead, I am sharing a few photos taken last August when my family and I were in New York, and took the time to visit St. Paul’s Chapel to remember…
I will never forget that visit, just like we will never forget September 11, 2001. And now, May 1, 2011 will mark the day that 9/11 came full circle.
The time-line of tragic events on 9/11:
There are many exhibits inside St. Paul’s Chapel…
This cross is made out of metal from the Twin Towers. A symbol of strength rising from a time of crisis and grief.
Here you see new construction under way at Ground Zero…
The Twin Towers will not be replicated. Instead a new tower will be built in their place.
I love seeing the American flags on the cranes.
A show of unity and commitment to new beginnings.
Can you see the crane between the buildings?
That’s Ground Zero.
The new construction is a testament to the words above the entrance of St. Paul’s Chapel, ‘Out of the Dust’.
And today, there is renewed hope for fresh beginnings, and for peace.
This lantern outside the entrance to St. Paul’s Chapel is a reminder that the light will always shine brightly when there’s hope, trust and faith.
It’s about coming home…
