Heads Or Tails - Autumn Memory

Me and Mr. Skittles just got back from a short trip to Pennsylvania. We met up with a blogging friend and you can read about that a couple posts down. (Hi, Jeni!) But today I'm going to post about another place we visited.. the crash site of Flight 93 that occurred on 9/11.

A bigger memorial is in the planning for this area and in fact there weren't many signs to lead us in to it. One sign was even hand painted. I suppose those who want (need?) to find it will find it.

It goes without saying that being so close to where heroes had given their lives was a very emotional experience. I'll let the pictures speak for themselves.

I can't even imagine what it would feel like to be there. That was such a sad day in American history, but the people on that plane were very brave.

I think from time to time that I would like to go see this memorial but then, just looking at these pictures makes me tear up so I wonder how well I would be able to hold up if I saw this in person?

Such sadness with respect to that flight and to the entire chain of events on that day.

They were heroes and will live in our memories. I can only imagine how emotional and heart wrenching it was to visit.

That would be a place I'd like to see some day.

It seems our vacations end up going to sad places like this. It does make for some wonderful memories though. I like the way we travel :)

That reminds me of when we went to Gettysburg. It stirs up all kinds of emotions.
