The Importance Of Ground Zero As A Sacred Space

Decent Essays
To understand the controversy of whether Ground Zero is a sacred space, you have to know what is meant by scared. We can often point out a church, mosque or synagogue as being scared, because of a widespread belief, sacrifice, rules, and rituals. We can also look at places in nature that are scared and have a special meaning to diverse cultures. In the indigenous culture a place that is scared, would be something spiritual, alive, culturally essential, or deserving of respect, however a place that is is just spiritually, or culturally important, rather than scared may not seem as important to protect to other people. Ground Zero has remained a part of American history for the past 14 years, and I believe should be considered a sacred place.
