On Sunday, I wrote a sister piece to this post about simply being at the St. Louis 9/11 memorial, and the importance for me to not take photos on that day.
Today, I visited with my camera and some of the same thoughts went through my head as on Sunday. And yet, even so, I hope these photos let you experience this memorial a little yourself, to see both the scope and intimacy of this installation and the care with which it was both erected and is being visited. Even on this rainy Wednesday evening, there were visitors–a man in a business suit, a couple, a family. May God continue to bless and heal the families who lost loved ones on that day.
The memorial is scheduled to remain up until September 18th.
