Visiting The Flight 93 Memorial

I’ve been to Ground Zero (1st time as volunteer Nov ’01) and the Pentagon multiple times, but never to the field where United 93 crashed. Today I had a chance to visit the field and memorial outside of Stoystown, PA. The site is in a rural, peaceful, and beautiful area in SW Pennsylvania. Even though it’s been 10 years, the memories trigger emotions. The heroic actions of Todd Beamer (a Wheaton Graduate) and the passengers stopped the terrorists from their diabolic plan. I’m reminded of Edmund Burke’s “All that is required for evil to prevail is for good men to do nothing.” On that day of trial, will we be like Todd Beamer and say, “Let’s Roll” or not?
