While on a recent trip to PA to attend the Mother Earth News Fair, we stopped at the Flight 93 Memorial. Although not yet completed, the memorial was still very moving.
I have been to Gettysburg and to the beaches of Normandy. Both humbling experiences. However, there is something very different about visiting a memorial for an event that happened during my lifetime - and at a time in my life when I was old enough to understand what was happening. It almost felt like we were trespassing on this sacred ground - like this memorial is meant for future generations.
