Angels and Ministers of Grace
I know that (the above title) is a line from Shakespeare. For weeks I have driven by a statue near the local Starbucks of an angel holding a man. It wasn't until Monday that I actually walked up to the statue to see it up close. The statue is of an angel holding a man with a broken sword. The man does not look defeated but rescued in the arms of the angel. The broken sword suggests a battle and a battle in which there was a great foe. Did the man die in battle? Where is this battle in the first place?
And then I looked down at the plaque. The statue stands as a memorial to those who lost their lives on September 11, 2001.
May their memory be eternal.
