Remember the cross-shaped beams pulled from the wreckage at the World Trade Center on 9/11?
The symbol of faith and hope that inspired rescue workers and 9/11 families is being moved from the site.
The 20-foot-tall artifact was discovered in the smoking ruins two weeks after the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks and became a symbol for recovery workers, family and later construction crews at the site.
It will be moved to the exterior wall of nearby St. Peter’s Church during construction at the trade center site. The World Trade Center Memorial Foundation has said it plans to include the cross as part of its memorial or inside the Sept. 11 museum.
Making the cross part of the official memorial or museum display would be a wonderful idea–though I’m sure lawyers for the ACLU and CAIR will be ready to file their lawsuits any day now.
