When the twin towers had come tumbling down after the plane attacks, after the smoke cleared there appeared... a cross! Some of the foundation of the twin towers came down in one piece, planting a piece of it shaped like a cross in the ground. Now it doesn't take much to make for a religious symbol. Give people a dog's ass and lo and behold! It's an apparition of Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior! In the case of Ground Zero however, even if the good Lord decided to plant a symbol there, what could that mean? That God suffered together with His people? That God endorsed the attacks? Perhaps it was a tag, telling you "I Am was here!" I don't know, it's not very clear to me what it would be supposed to mean, but I do know that the Americans in their best of traditions made sure to sentimentalize the hell out of it right away.
