A 52 page magazine dedicated to Flight 93 National Memorial.
On September 11th, 2001, a plane fell out of the sky in our back-yard and our lives changed forever. Grieving family members and friends of the passengers came to our community and we did what was expected of us - we acted with compassion-- helping people in need. And from that horrific event, bonds of friendship and understanding developed. One of the common agreements we made was to make something good come out of this tragedy. The Flight 93 Memorial is one of those good things.
