    Grief, reflection mark Flight 93 memorial ceremony
    Updated at 03:19 PM today

    SHANKSVILLE, Pa. — A decade after 40 passengers and crew died when Flight 93 knifed into a Pennsylvania field, family members grieved, reflected and looked forward during ceremonies at the new permanent memorial to the sacrifices made there, described by one former president as one of the most courageous in U.S. history.

    On Sunday, a day after the Flight 93 National Memorial was dedicated with speeches by former Presidents George Bush and Bill Clinton, President Barack Obama and his wife, Michelle, placed a wreath at the memorial by the 40-panel wall bearing the names of those who died.

    Sandra Jamerson, 59, of Antioch, Calif., met the Obamas because her twin sister, Wanda Green, was among the 40 passengers and crew killed when they decided to fight four hijackers for control of the plane during the Sept. 11, 200,1 terrorist attacks. Jamerson attended Saturday’s dedication of the national memorial and Sunday’s memorial service there to remember the victims.

    Jamerson said Saturday’s dedication was “very significant because it was an accomplishment because we’ve waited so long” for the national park.

    The media cannot REWRITE HISTORY

    Please spare yourselves and stay away from MSNBC & CNN today. Disgraceful re-aring of the 911 attacks, instead of coverage of the actual MEMORIAL SERVICES being held around the country, they are palying on the emotions and fears of Americans for RATINGS. BASTARDS!!!
