Remnants from the fence in front of the chapel
In contrast, the "official" memorial for 9/11 has taken nearly 8 years to even get a plan together, and has barely started construction. Perhaps it's because billions of dollars as well as politicians' careers are on the line. Or perhaps it's simply because one object cannot encompass the entirety of the world's emotions. Whatever the reason the official memorial is taking so long, I'm glad Saint Paul's Chapel could provide a space for a more grass-roots and diverse response.
