A Manhattan's Feng Shui Consultants Reflections of 9/11--Pt. 2

By
Home Stager with Feng Shui Manhattan Long Island #888

It is nothing short of a miracle that this tiny church remains.....directly across the street from the site of the World Trade Center.  A tiny, historic church that was preserved.  George Washington prayed here and in fact, had his very own pew.  The memorials they have inside are a beautiful tribute to all the lovely souls lost on that day.

A Teddy Bear collection was started by an out of state school teacher; her idea was to get one to every child who had lost a parent.  The numbers donated went far beyond, donations of more then 15,000 bears came to New York.

St. Pauls Memorial 9/11/01

A riminder of the walls that covered our City.

St. Pauls

In the days and weeks to come, it was then Mayor Guliani who became our leader.  He could be seen everywhere doing everything he could to organize and help. He attended funerals and weddings and showed us that in fact, life does go on.  Earth Angels came from all over and from great distances to do anything they could for New York...and many, many people worked endless hours putting their own health at risk to help this city and its people in a time of crisis.

Security is tight today and it should be.  Many people still believe New York to be a primary target of any further attacks.  But the people in this city stay....and still love it for all it has to offer.

Carole - It is still so raw all these years later.  It is good to celebrate every little miracle.

Joan, I felt the same way, that it was a miracle that little building was left standing...surely for a reason.

Bill, Thank you, I do.  And have a passion for this lovely city as well.

Gary, It was one wonderful idea that spread through the country, the bears arrived from all over.

Debbie, New York City is wonderful, you would enjoy it if you came back and probably find it much safer and cleaner then when you were last here.

Susan, It is beyond imagination but so were the incredible people who came in from all over to help.

Carol, I agree, it can't be anything else.  This beautiful chuch is just amazing and it's no wonder the memorial is in there.

Jeff, It was amazing to me to be inside that church....and it was very quiet inside, no one saying a word or making any noise at all....in total respect.

Rich, I think most of us have mixed emotions.  It is unbelievably sad yet at the same time New York really pulled together and so many incredible people came to help.  I think everyone would agree that there are many emotions to this horrific event.

Cristal, New York City is one hour from me....and I love the Energy there so I'm there often for work and play.

Katerina, I don't know why the media left a lot out.  I believe everyone felt lost as the president and vice president went into hiding...I had a new found respect for former Mayor Guliani after this.

Missy, It's hard to believe it's so old and survived completely intact.  I thought it was something that those that don't come or live in New York might be interested in seeing.

Cynthia, There was not one child who didn't get a bear and there was a surplus...which were given to the workers at Ground Zero.

Deborah, It's facinating and really a miracle that this beautiful and historic place survived.  It was so close I wish I had taken pictures of the distance.

Arina, Maybe it's just as well that you didn't see it....it was so painful to watch.  And the memories never leave.

Jo, That's exactly what it is, a place of hope.  And one day, peace all over I wish for everyone.

Kathleen, I believe that would be the best blessing of all....peace all over for every person and place.

Joan, I agree, this tiny church is a miracle.  It gives many people comfort, I hope.

Hi And thank you for your comment.  I always show the "best" of New York City but I too don't want people to forget.

Maureen, It is raw still---but this historic place has found a new meaning and I do hope it gives some people some comfort.

Awesome post Carole.....I still remember the exact moment of where I was and how I felt when all the TV stations broke the News and showed unbelievable footage.

Your series is a tribute to how giving helping people came together despite tragedy and differences....

Thanks for sharing these photos - I for one have not been back to see ground zero and these stories you shared show that goodness survives :)

Sincerely,

Grace
