Hundreds of people went to the Flight 93 National Memorial on Saturday to pay their respects to the victims of 9/11. There was a flood of emotions throughout the day as many visitors recall the sorrow and the sacrifice the passengers and crew members of Flight 93 made 20 years ago.
On the same day two planes crashed into the Twin Towers in Manhattan, Flight 93 from Newark, NJ to San Francisco, CA was hijacked and eventually crashed into the Pennsylvania countryside. While many think first to pay respects to the fallen in New York City, others feel a responsibility to mourn and commemorate those on that fateful westbound plane.
While sadness instantly comes to mind when remembering the tragedy of 9/11, some saw good arise from the terror. President Biden and former President George W. Bush each delivered remarks at the Memorial on Saturday, both stressing the message of togetherness, despite their political differences.
