Flight 93 Memorial

Yesterday the hubby and I went on a road trip. I will tell you about the Mother Earth News Fair in my next post, but our first stop was the Flight 93 Memorial. I have been to the Memorial in NYC. These are both very solemn, very impactful and very beautifully designed memorials and yet, they feel completely different. I realize that part of that is due to the overwhelming crowds of people who were with us in NYC while, for a while, we were the only ones yesterday. Of course the settings are extremely urban vs rolling hills rural. But there was something else I couldn’t quantify that I know I felt in both places, but in a different way. I will stop there and just share some pictures, though pictures cannot replace the experience of being there. Visiting any memorial is a way to recognize tragedy, sacrifice and loss, and we should all visit when we can.
