"A Common Field One Day. A Field Of Honor Forever."
Shortly after the attacks of September 11, 2001, Congress honored the passengers and crew of United Airlines Flight 93 by authorizing a monument to their uncommon bravery.
To that end, the National Parks Foundation is raising private donations for the Flight 93 Memorial Fund and is holding a design competition. Once established, the memorial in Orange County, Pennsylvania will enshrine forever the extraordinary valor of ordinary Americans who gave their lives to save Washington, D.C. from a devastating terrorist attack.
At the moment, there is a large temporary memorial at the crash site in Orange County. Of the many tributes on display there, one is a message from a Los Angeles firefighter which can serve as the Memorial Fund's mission statement:
May all who visit this place remember the collective acts of courage and sacrifice of the passengers and crew, revere this hallowed ground as the final resting place of those heroes, and reflect on the power of individuals who choose to make a difference.
To donate to the Flight 93 Memorial Fund, visit the National Parks Foundation website here.
