Found standing amidst the remains of the fallen World Trade Center two days after the devastation on September 11, 2001 were these cross beams from one of the towers. The remarkable shape of these preserved beams did not go, nor has gone, unappreciated or undervalued.
In a remarkably depraved state of mind, atheists brought a law suit against the intentions to preserve this “World Trade Center Cross” in the national memorial for 9/11. That law suit was defeated and the “WTC Cross” has been faithfully included in our nation’s memorial, as it should be — even for those who are not Christian or hold no reverence for Christianity, the beams as they were found and in what shape they are make a remarkable statement as to the events of 9/11/01 which was a decidedly religious statement by Islamacists in antagonism of the United States as a Judeo-Christian nation.
May all who perished on that day and afterward from the ongoing effects of that terrible series of events rest in peace and may God comfort, continue to comfort, their survivors.
