About Flight 93 Memorial

The Flight 93 Memorial was completed and dedicated on December 8, 2007. Union City was the first city in the United States to create a memorial specifically for the heroes of Flight 93, before the national memorial in Shanksville, Pennsylvania was created. The memorial includes 40 granite stones bearing the names of the passengers and crew members along a path that begins at a "Circle of Remembrance." On the front side of the 40 stones is a polished stainless-steel mirror to reflect the viewer’s own image to signify that it could have been any one of us aboard Flight 93 that day. The back of the 40 remembrance stones were left unfinished to signify that the heroes had unfinished lives. The stones end at a "Circle of Hope," which contains an American flag that symbolizes the bravery and courage of the passengers and crew, as well as hand-painted tiles from local children that represent a more hopeful future.
