Part IV: Pictures at the temporary memorial site.

A permanent memorial is underway at the crash site. These photos don't really tell the story nor do they, in my opinion, express the emotions of those who visit this area. The photo array is here. Photo 15 is the scrap yard that overlooks the exact entry point and it is from that perfect vantage point that Lena Lensbouer was able to observe the plane coming in and its impact.

Tens of millions of words have been written about 9-11. Dane and I were able to stand fairly close down the road to the fence line and near the pond where one wheel broke off and bounced into. It's eerily quiet out there and not difficult to use your imagination to picture what must have been the most unbelievable horror being experienced by all the passengers on Flight 93. As Dane and I stood at the memorial and at Nevin Lambert's farm house so close to the impact site watching him describe seeing that commercial air liner coming right at him, evoked feelings that won't go away for a long, long time.

Those responsible for September 11, 2001 have not been brought to justice, yet. But, they will be because we the people will not stop our relentless pursuit of them and we get closer every day.
