This is St. Paul's Chapel, which was a haven of
rest and refuge for exhausted rescue workers in the
hours, days, and months following the collapse of the towers.

It's been a place of remembrance ever since,
and now that the official memorial has
been dedicated—even as new towers are going
up near the site of the old ones—I hope folks 

will continue to come here to reflect on 
what happened that day and on the tremendous 
outpouring of love and support we received 
from around the country and around the world.


  1. We remember and will never forget.
    From Belgium with love to all the new yorkers.

  2. It still feels like it was yesterday.The cry and love for America was overwhelming. We all wanted to go there and help someway.The efforts of rescue where of a different kind altogether. America in its worst moment became America at its best. It will be hard to forget.

  3. I remember seeing this beautiful chapel on the news at the time. Even from here, it looked like a haven. You're in my thoughts, Alexa. Much love.

  4. Wonderful post, and I would love to hear your story of that day.


  5. I've never been inside St. Paul's Chapel so I think it might be time to make a special trip. The banner from Oklahoma is especially touching.
    It's hard to believe it's been ten years.
