The Nation's Newest Monument to the Heros of 9/11

Something drew me to this new and still-developing monument to the heroic passengers and crew of Flight 93. Even in the waining light, misty rain and remote location, it was a powerful experience for me. There is a couple of websites which are easy to find, directing you to the site. It was part of a farmer's field, but soon there will be an impressive park and monument to visit. It wlil just take awhile...over the next ten to twenty years. But, go now and experience the simple and profound outpouring of rustic memorials, multiple flags and helpful volunteer staff. Take pictures and leave a donation. You won't regret it!

Pros and Cons
