Today is the anniversary of the September 11, 2001 attacks, events which were both traumatic and transformative in ways we are still discovering. From the book The Survivor Tree (written by Cheryl Somers Aubin), about a tree that survived and was re-planted on the new Memorial Plaza, I post this illustration of the fountain that once stood nearby. Now a new water feature stands in its place on the Plaza, another hopeful symbol of renewal.
There is an item in Sunday’s Washington Post about The Survivor Tree.
Understanding is a well-spring of life unto him that hath it: but the instruction of fools is folly. —Proverbs 16:22
