Nine Eleven Zero Five

The Ground Zero Cross

From September 11 News:

You are looking at what some people believe is a miracle.

Two days after the disaster, a construction worker found several perfectly formed crosses planted upright in a pit in the rubble of the heavily damaged 6 World Trade Center.

The large, cross-shaped metal beams just happened to fall that way when one of the towers collapsed. An FBI chaplain who has spent days at ground zero says he has not seen anything like it on the vast site.

As word of the find has spread at ground zero, exhausted and emotionally overwhelmed rescue workers have been flocking to the site to pray and meditate.

"People have a very emotional reaction when they see it," says the Rev. Carl Bassett, an FBI chaplain. "They are amazed to see something like that in all the disarray. There's no symmetry to anything down there, except those crosses."

God be with those who died on September 11, 2001. God be with their families and friends.

Note: Incredible as it may seem, there are forces on the far left that seek to erase the memory of what was lost that day.

The Far Left has attempted ot hijack the Ground Zero Memorial in lower Manhattan and turn it into a "Blame America First" monument. Don't let them Got to Take Back the Memorial and sign the petition.

Don't let leftists desecrate the memory of "The Flight That Fought Back." Go to Michelle Malkin's to see how a liberal L.A. architect is trying to turn the Flight 93 memorial into a tribute to the terrorists.

Update: John in Carolina finds a touching story of friendship worth dying for in the South Tower.

Does anybody know if this cross is still there?

I can't believe the ACLU would have allowed it to stand.

Personally, I hope it stands there permanently as part of the memorial. The sight of it brings such comfort.

I believe that the cross has been saved for inclusion in the eventual 9/11 memorial/museum. It was removed from the site in a ceremony after the rest of the site was cleared of debris so that reconstruction could proceed.

The Port Authority has said that the cross would be included in the museum/memorial in some fashion.

Probably you've noticed this:

Forgetting means hard-won lessons will be lost.

This is a 5-minute video memorial. No burning buildings, no rubble, no explosions, no speeches, no screeches, no Bin Laden, no bodies. Just a remembrance of some people whose lives were cut short through no fault of their own, with poignant candid snapshots from their lives, accompanied by a musical background.
