Healing (Flight 93 Memorial)

"Heavenly friends continue always to strengthen me
So that out of the weaving fire of destiny
I may walk as a firmer vessel of destiny,
And learn to fill myself every more
With the meaning of the Divine goals of the world."

Flight 93 Memorial 2011, where in 2001 angels gave their lives to prevent the plane crashing into the capital.

Photos by Bob. Poem by Rudolf Steiner. Layout modeled after one by Amy Parker in Scrapbook Trends magazine. The angel stamps I chose represent blessings for "Impeccable Integrity", "Profound Peace", "Absolute Protection" and "Spiritual Growth".

"Heroes of Somerset County" is a layout I made in 2007 of the Flight 93 site and also the site of the Quecreek mine memorial.

"We will never forget the 9-11 Terrorist attacks when passengers of Flight 93 overtook the terrorists and crashed the plane in a remote area of Pennsylvania, taking their own lives while perhaps diverting a tragedy of a much larger degree. It was only 5 months later that there was a happy ending to another national story in Somerset County at Quecreek Mine, where 9 trapped miners were located and rescued. Everyone should see these"

All of the memorabilia that visitors left at the site have been cataloged and preserved.

A time to remember, a time for prayer~ I have been too sad to make a LO, but I should. I like the canvas you used and the stamped angels.
