UAL 93 Memorial

Fri Sep 14, 2001 11:56 am

Evidence appears to suggest that due to the selfless courage of passengers aboard UAL 93 countless lives may have been saved on 9-11-01. If this does prove to be true I suggest it would be a fitting memorial that their remains be interred at Arlington National Cemetary as national heroes. I would be interested in viewing your comments.

Nice idea, but let's not get carried away. That's a plausible explanation of what might have happened to UA 93, but no one is around to confirm that. And don't forget that three other airliners, with souls aboard as well, are deserving of a memorial. In fact, the whole WTC area (the high value of real-estate down in lower Manhattan notwithstanding) should be turned into a memorial.

Could anyone support the idea not to rebuild WTC? and build a memorial instead.

Many lives were lost and what the new buildings do is to hurt us more.

They would hurt more in any other place than New York.

This is a town that knows how to defiantly say 'f*ck you' better than any place on Earth. And they'll say it to the America-haters by rebuilding.

Five to seven years, I'm guessing. Twin towers will again grace Manhattan. Knowing New York, they'll probably be twice as tall. With full time Stinger equipped security guards in the rooftops.

My Idea for Future Design:


2 Towers, with a Memorial Courtyard in the Center.
