The families of the 40 passengers and crew killed when Flight 93 knifed into a rural Pennsylvania field a decade ago today were praised for helping to inspire a new generation of Americans while keeping the memories of their loved ones’ dedication and courage burning brightly.

At a ceremony marking the 10th anniversary of the Sept. 11 attacks, nearly 5,000 people listened as the names of the passengers and crew who were killed were read aloud while bells tolled. Afterward, a choir sang as those in the crowd — including family members, first responders, politicians and nearly 1,000 people who came to participate — listened intently.

Blessings – keeping all in our thoughts and prayers.

Take care and STAY SAFE!
