Visit memorial, donate
Dear fellow citizens:
We urge you to do these two things:
1. Visit the Flight 93 National Memorial in Shanksville, just about an hour's drive from Greensburg on U.S. Route 30 East. This memorial is in remembrance of the seven crew members and the 33 passengers who, on Sept. 11, 2001, overpowered armed terrorists and forced their plane to crash before it could hit the Capitol or the White House in Washington, D.C.
Seeing the photos of our 40 heroes, their names engraved on the white marble wall of names, and the field where it all happened is an overwhelming and moving experience.
2. Give a donation toward completion of the memorial!
As we were reminded of in the news story "D.C. event raises $2M for Flight 93 memorial" (May 17 and TribLIVE.com), $8 million in private donations is still needed. Even by giving a small annual donation, you make a statement of appreciation for our country and for the heroic action of those passengers and crew members.
To learn how you can be part of the historic effort to complete the memorial, please visit honorflight93.org.
