Flight 93 Memorial - 2009

This past Monday, Labor Day we went to Shanksville, Pa to see the Flight 93 Memorial. Approximately 2 and a half hour drive from our house.

Many memorials were placed on this small but meaningful place. The above memorial has all the names of the victims of Flight 93. In the background, at the top of the photo you will see a line of trees, this is where the plane crashed on 9.11.01

A closer view of the site you can see in the photo of a white square is a flag. It is hanging on a fence that surrounds the crash site. A closer view

A wall that is covered in small tokens of remembrance. The benches which face the crash site also has the names of the victims on them.

Another memorial with small tokens.

A fresh flower arrangement

This is the view from the benches. The angels, representing the heroes.
Although it may look like there wasn't many people there, it was, a Park Ranger was talking about the that day and other the recovery of what was found of the plane and I was taking the photos. Some of the photos can be made larger by clicking on them.

As we were leaving, this was another angle of the crash site.

We Will Never Forget

I wondered what the crash site was like and now I know what is there.

It is small, but they are soon making a permanent memorial which will take you closer to the site.
