Courage Of Flight 93 Victims Lauded At Dedication

The 40 passengers and crew who fought back against their hijackers aboard Flight 93 on Sept. 11, 2001, performed one of the most courageous acts in U.S. history, former President George W. Bush said Saturday at a ceremony dedicating the first phase of a memorial at the nation’s newest national park.

At the United 93 memorial in Shanksville, PA, Flags are in abundance here. Strangely, there is a calmness here, it's quiet and serene, not much talking, you don't need to talk. Large granite memorials to small painted rocks done by children, mementos left everywhere. There is a need to leave something, a tribute of sorts. It's heartwrenching but heartwarming at the same time, as odd as that sounds. It's a reminder of our strengths and the love of our country. A place where everyone should go, even if it's just once, you won't regret it, you'll come away a different person for being here, and proud to be an American. This memorial won't be around much longer, a permanent one will be there, eventually. This one should stay but it isn't, and that's sad, because this one was made by people like you and me - Submitted by Paula Rowell  of Pine Grove, Pa.
