Dr. Pearl’s Volunteer Experience at St. Paul’s Chapel After 9-11
Standing on the viewing platform of the World Trade Center site, I was not fully prepared for the deep emotions I experienced nearly six months after the devastation. In March of 2002, I spent a weekend volunteering at the medical clinic located in St.Paul’s Chapel, which was spared by the September 11 blast and served as the immediate triage station after the disaster. I still get chills when I think about the time I spent at the chapel and ground zero.
