Israel's 9/11 Memorial

The memorial is a 30' bronze American flag that forms the shape of a flame to commemorate the flames of the Twin Towers. 
The base of the monument is made of melted steel from the wreckage of the World Trade Center.
Surrounding the monument are plaques with the names of the victims of 9/11.  
It is the only memorial outside the U.S. that includes the names of all who perished in the terrorist attacks.

September 11 x2

"Your God will come with vengeance...
He will come and save you"
Isaiah 35:4
In A Time for Heroes, Lance Wubbles paid tribute to the patriotic heroes the world watched on September 11, 2001: 
It was a day of unthinkable horror and destruction, but it became a day for American heroes. Ordinary American citizens, suddenly caught in the crossfire of terrorism, put their lives on the line to preserve the lives of others…
          They emerged as the truly mighty and valiant ones of Flight 93. Among the smoldering wreckage of the Pentagon, they stood with undimmed spirits as firefighters unfurled a gigantic flag from the roof of the burned-out structure. At Ground Zero, hundreds and thousands of people on dozens of fronts searched the mountain of unstable rubble in an epic battle to win back as many lives as could possibly be rescued.
          Most of them remain nameless to us, but their undaunted faces are engraved forever upon our hearts. They are the firefighters… They are the police, paramedics, rescue workers, doctors, nurses, National Guard, Red Cross Workers. And they are the janitors and security guards and office managers and the coworkers who said no to death and helped thousands escape who might have easily perished…
          In a world where rock superstars, athletes and celebrities have been elevated to hero status, we were given a lesson on true heroism and patriotism.

Heavenly Father, give us wisdom and strength as we fight against evil in this world.  Amen

The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases; His mercies never come to an end; they are new every morning; great is your faithfulness.
Lamentations 3:22-23
