The 17th anniversary of the September 11th attacks is being observed at the location of one of them – the Flight 93 National Memorial Site at Shanksville, Pa. – with the dedication of a wind chimes tower. It will have 40 aluminum chimes for the 40 people who were killed in the crash of a hijacked jetliner in a rural Pennsylvania field.
In Homeland Security carries an Associated Press report that “Relatives of the 40 people killed during the terrorist attacks of Sept. 11, 2001, helped ring eight of what will eventually be 40 aluminum chimes at the Flight 93 National Memorial site, and former Pa. Gov. Tom Ridge said the Tower of Voices will be ‘an everlasting concert by our heroes.'”
A fitting memorial indeed.
