Flight 93 Memorial Ceremony

Both President Trump and Joe Biden visited the Flight 93 National Memorial on Friday in Shanskville, honoring those whose lives were lost 19 years ago on September 11th. The President and the First Lady landed in Pennsylvania around 9am before heading to the Flight 93 National Memorial for the 9/11 Observance Ceremony.

During the Annual Ceremony, the 40 names of those killed on Flight 93 were read out loud. The President then gave a speech before heading back to Washington D.C. A little later on, Democratic Presidential Nominee Joe Biden and his wife Jill visited the Memorial laying wreaths at the Memorial’s Wall of Names. The couple spoke with numerous other family members gathered at the site.

For Friday’s 9/11 Remembrance Ceremony at the Flight 93 National Memorial, the public was not allowed to attend, but were able to enter the park after the event. Each year, the Observance Ceremony usually draws thousands of people to the area to pay their respects. Friday morning, visitors from all over Pennsylvania and even out of State lined Route 30 waiting to get into the Flight 93 National Memorial site.

The Flight 93 National Memorial honors the 40 passengers and crew members of Flight 93 who lost their lives in Somerset County in the 9/11 attack. Regardless of political party, these visitors say they just want to remember the victims of the September 11th attack that hit very close to home.
