The Flight 93 National Memorial
Yesterday, I met with members of the Families of Flight 93, Gordon Felt and Patrick White, to discuss the ongoing development of the Flight 93 National Memorial. Since joining the Senate, I helped to secure over $15.1 million for this project and will continue to advocate for funding until it is complete. The Flight 93 Memorial honors the men and women who courageously sacrificed their lives to save others. It is my hope that the Memorial will serve as a place of remembrance, healing and reflection.
On the tenth anniversary of 9/11, I was honored to participate in the dedication of the Memorial. The Families of Flight 93 have been tireless in their efforts to complete the Memorial. I stand with them in this effort and am humbled by their perseverance and perspective.
