Flight 93 National Memorial in Shanksville, PA
Just three years ago, on our way to visit my family and friends in Pennsylvania, Mike and I stayed at a Bed and Breakfast not too far from Shanksville, PA. The Flight 93 National Memorial was nearby, so we decided to visit.
It was October of 2015. The visitor center complex had just opened September 10, 2015. There were lots of photos to see and actual recordings of Flight 93 to listen to, but, I couldn't listen to the recordings. Honestly, it was so sad to be there. But, we wanted to be there to pay our respects to those that were lost on that day.
There was a huge rock in a field not too far from the visitor center that represented the area where the plane had gone down. Also, there was a stone wall erected with all the names of the people on Flight 93 - 40 passengers and crew members - that had perished that day, September 11, 2001.
A sign there reads, "A common field one day, a field of honor forever."
These are some of my own pictures I took at the Flight 93 National Memorial.
