Today we remember 9/11 on the twelfth anniversary of the terrorist attack. The 9/11 Memorial Museum is collecting stories and artifacts of that fateful day The museum contains artifacts from the Twin Towers, but it is also built around the remains. It is a museum built around an artifact.The museum showcases many of the artifacts of the event—everything from the pillar shaped liked a cross to the last column with personal notes, photos, and other things left by searchers and workers on the last column removed from the building.
In addition to pieces of the buildings and planes and other artifacts, the museum is preserving personal memories with oral histories from survivors and memories from individuals who lost loved ones. Visitors to the museum can hear from those who escaped, rescue workers who risked their lives to help others, and people who lost loved ones.
May this country once again come together in unity as we did after 9/11.
ALMIGHTY God, who hast given us this good land for our heritage; We humbly beseech thee that we may always prove ourselves a people mindful of thy favour and glad to do thy will. Bless our land with honourable industry, sound learning, and pure manners. Save us from violence, discord, and confusion; from pride and arrogancy, and from every evil way. Defend our liberties, and fashion into one united people the multitudes brought hither out of many kindreds and tongues. Endue with the spirit of wisdom those to whom in thy Name we entrust the authority of government, that there may be justice and peace at home, and that, through obedience to thy law, we may show forth thy praise among the nations of the earth. In the time of prosperity, fill our hearts with thankfulness, and in the day of trouble, suffer not our trust in thee to fail; all which we ask through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
