I read somewhere that a group of atheists where threatening a lawsuit to prevent the cross form becoming part of any permanent memorial. That is just crazy to stop people form using that cross to remember those they lost in the 9/11 attacks i just dont understand how people can be so cruel and how they only care for their beliefs and no one elses.

Its good to see that in places where horrible unforgivable things have happened, that theres the cross! Representing our wonderful Lord. I think that this cross will give whoever that looks at it or gets to see it Hope and Faith that everything will be ok.

I find it quite ironic that they found a piece of the building resembling a cross exactly. I remember this Thursday in class telling us about the childrens artwork on the subway to NJ. I remember the one where it had the arrow pointing to the building reading "dad is here". I think about how thankful I am to have a dad that is still around for me. I thank my God everyday for the, what I consider, blessings I have in my life.

This is an amazing symbol. It makes you think spiritually and patriotically. I remember the day this happened and how it felt . I was in high school, 3rd period, living in a town in New Jersey called Hillsborough. Our school was just refurbished and therefore had televisions in each classroom. As class was going on a teacher came busting into our room with ultimate concern. She told our teacher to turn on the television and there we saw one of the towers in flames. All the kids could not believe what they were seeing. We were all puzzled and concerned. I looked over to one of my friends because I knew his dad worked in the World Trade Center. For the next two periods we watched cautiously and well observed. Especially my friend. It was one of the most shocking and disturbing things to see. Especially to figure out that my his dad had passed away in this disaster. I will always remember this cross as it stands strong in a lot of people's memories and losses.

I believe it is a beautiful memorial for the losses of 9/11 Yes I am a Christian but I can see where having a cross on such an important memorial can be an issue when this country fights so hard for separation of church and state. There probably were individuals lives lost who were not Christian and it could be seen as an insult if it is not the God they chose to follow. In addition to the lives that were lost are those who were affected by 9/11 across the country could take it as in insult. Its been mentioned may times this country is a "melting pot" we have people of every religion sharing this country. It is not right for anyone to be forced to follow another individuals religion just because they feel they are the right way.

I was shown this picture by someone who did not believe in the cross and completely against it. Her argument was that we should not just assume that everyone that the cross was for believed in the cross, "what if that was not what they wanted?, What if they were not religious or believed in the cross?." I just shook my head and said to her," you really put that much thought into that?", and I ended the discussion there.

Wow this is amazing.. I wish I could have been to this site close to 9/11 ... I've been to many memorials and the feel you get (although it's very saddening) is one that can't even be explained.

The last time i was in New York was two years ago for a quick weekend wedding I had to attend, so i never got to stop and see ground zero, but the time before that i was there back in 2002 only a few months after the planes struck the towers. you couldnt even get close enough to ground zero because they were still picking up debree.

I think that the cross should be displayed because it is a symbol that so many people know and is widely used as a marking of where tragedy has happened. Most places where someone has died there is a cross. So if this protestors want this taked down then they would want every cross taken down. This is the same thing as the people who do not want christmas tress hanging up in public places such as airports.
It has gotten to the point where you can not even bring up religion in conversations anymore because it can ruin friendships. i get so irritated at people who protest things like this.

I think that a great idea! I feel that the next generations to come should be able to actually see an something from 9-11 that symbolizes one of the few times that most Americans united.

This story brought back a lot of sad memories from 9/11 for many people. I'm very happy this cross will be on display for all to see for generations to come.
