St. Paul's Chapel. Across the street from the World Trade Center's Twin Towers. (click on the picture for a larger image.)
This chapel was untouched by the collapse of those two towers. This chapel became a haven for all who volunteered, and for those that needed to express their fear, anguish and loss. At this chapel all could find a hot meal, medical attention, words of comfort, and a place to rest their head. When volunteers left the site they left behind a symbol of themselves, their badges. And those badges are what cover this cloak.
The words on the above picture read;
"Everyone had a breaking point. Tormented by the realities at Ground Zero workers turned to the chapel for comfort. Volunteer counselors and clergy greeted the workers with compassion and love. In the pews, workers whispered their stories and unburdened their minds. Volunteers and workers cried, prayed and found solace in the communal warmth at St. Paul's."
This day is a perfect day to have you visit Tiffany at The R Family Diaries. She is holding The Pay It Forward contest. We do need to do this for each other more often, don't we? Go visit and pay it forward.
