Flight 93 Memorial


I go shopping at Smart and Final for groceries in Union Landing Shopping Center in Union City near where I live. I drive by this memorial a lot. I finally decided to stop and pay my respects.  It has been 18 years since that terrible day. The passengers and flight attendents who attempted to regain control of that flight are true heroes:









It is a very simple but elegant and powerful memorial to some heroes who died tragically.  In your busy day, please say a prayer for all of those who lost their lives on that sad day.
