The public is invited to gather in remembrance and honor of the 40 passengers and crew members of Flight 93, as well as all who gave their lives on September 11, 2001.
The annual observance will begin at 9:45 a.m. on Friday, September 11, on the Memorial Plaza. At 10:03 a.m. – the moment Flight 93 crashed – the names of the passengers and crew members will be read, the Bells of Remembrance will be rung in their memory, and a wreath will be placed at the Wall of Names. Limited seating will be available on a first-come, first-served basis.
Last year, Boston University journalism professor Mitchell Zuckoff and Vice President Mike Pence delivered remarks. In 2001, Zuckoff covered the September 11 attack for the Boston Globe and authored eight nonfiction books, including two that focus on September 11. Additional remarks were made by Family member Gordon Felt, president of the Families of Flight 93. Music was provided by Pittsburgh’s River City Brass Band.
