Ground Zero Angel Resurrected

On November 9, 2010, an Angel rose from the ashes.

The Artist, Lei Hennessy-Owens, managed to extricate the sculpture from the clutches of the 9/11 memorial commission who have had it locked away in a hanger at Kennedy Airport since it was donated in 2001.  The Angel will now go on a cross country tour before returning to Ground Zero for the tenth annivesary of 9/11.

At the rededication ceremony, Lei gave a Messenger of Freedom award to Andrew Breitbart the conservative media icon. The award was accepted by Peter Schweizer, editor of Big Peace.

Tim Brown, retired FDNY firefighter was also given a Messenger of Freedom award:
