Firefighter Finds A Bible Melted To A Piece Of Steel From 9/11 Ground Zero

The melted steel contained a biblical message about retaliation.

One of the United States’ worst tragedies happened on September 11, 2001. Dubbed as the 9/11 attack, a series of four coordinated terrorist attacks transpired, leading to the collapse of the twin towers of the World Trade Center in New York City.

The terrorist attack has killed nearly 3,000 people, who were inside the buildings when they collapsed. The site where the two buildings once stood is now called “Ground Zero.” A firefighter found the pages of the Bible fused to a melted chunk of steel from the World Trade Center building on March 2002.

The firefighter found the steel fragment under the Tully Road where the last pieces of the South Tower are found.

He then gave the piece to a photographer who happened to be on the site, taking photos of the aftermath of the terrorist attack.

Today, the artifact lies in the National September 11 Memorial Museum, which was given by the photographer, Joel Meyerowitz. He authored a book titled, “Aftermath: World Trade Center Archive,” where photos of the clearing operations and how the location looked months after the attack.

The photographer kept the memorabilia but later gave it to the museum.

Meyerowitz told the New York Times:

“This shredded, burned and rubble-covered Bible came to me from the loving hands of a fireman who knew that I was the record keeper of ground zero.”

“My astonishment at seeing the page that the Bible was open to made me realize that the Bible’s message survives throughout time and in every era, we interpret its teachings freshly, as the occasion demands.”

A message of forgiveness…

This is the phrase written on the page that fused to the melted steel.


“Ye have heard that it hath been said, An eye for an eye, and a tooth for a tooth: But I say unto you, That ye resist not evil: but whosoever shall smite thee on thy right cheek, turn to him the other also.”

This memorabilia will be shown to Pope Francis when he comes to visit the museum.

US Army Built a Fake Town to Hide Boeing Factory From Air Strikes During WWII

Consider the cost of each plane, the military really had to go the extra mile.

During the infamous World War 2, one B-17 Bomber would cost more or less $200,000 to produce. And in today’s economy, it is around $3.4 million. With the US Army requesting thousands of these planes, they would take every possible measure just to secure the Boeing factory responsible for creating them. And believe it or not, by “every possible measure” they mean hiring Hollywood set designers.

Well, that is because they wanted to build a fake neighborhood atop it. And in order to make it look very real, they also hired dozens of actors to live in the area. They believed that by doing so, they could protect the factory from any potential air strike. The so-called neighborhood was built sometime in 1944, though it was removed a year after.
