You captured St. Paul's so perfectly...felt the same when I visited the area in 2003...was a construction site by then. We headed over to St. Paul's and wow, the emotion of that day was (and still is) contained within that building. The only way I know to describe it was beautiful...that this small chapel stood for all the awful that happened that day but also all the good. And we visited again in 2011 with our daughter and it is still a place that you can go to and remember, regardless of your faith, you can go and feel arms wrap you in safety and warmth.
Beautiful post, Chris. One of your best. You should link it on Facebook.
