The black slate plaza has a low slanted wall, containing niches, in which visitors can leave tributes. The crash site will be planted with grasses bulbes and flowering plants, that will alternately bloom throughout the year.

there's also a movie about United 93 on the Discovery Channel Sunday night

"On the fourth anniversary of the 9/11 terrorist attacks, the Discovery Channel flies viewers into the heart of darkness in "The Flight That Fought Back'' (Sunday at 9 p.m.).

Relying on government reports, interviews with families and friends and audio recordings, the two-hour docudrama attempts to re-create the final moments of United Airlines Flight 93"

I live 40 miles from where the Flight 93 when down, and this Memorial will be a great honor to those who died on that terrible day. I have been at the site and right now there is just a fence with all kinds of memorabilia that people bring to the site. There is also a stone that has all the names of those who were on the flight.

Thanks, MrsSpringsteen for posting this thread, and also for the info on the movie.

I've been to Ground Zero, and I'm sure this would be just as heartwrenching.

hopefully since it's the Discovery Channel it will be tastefully done

I don't know, maybe we need to be reminded of what those people went through and what they tried to do. I know we don't need a TV movie to do that, but sometimes I worry that people will forget.

I saw a commercial for that last night. I'm having very bad feelings about it. I just hope they cleared it with all of the families.


I don't know, dramatic recreations of tragedies that are still so raw and fresh in our minds, it doesn't seem right to me. Of course, we should always remember, but perhaps not to the extent of making a made-for-cable film out of it.

some of the families cooperated with it, the DSC web site has some info about the movie

there is a Q& A w/ the producer

http://dsc.discovery.com/convergence.../producer.html

I'm going to give it a try, if it seems unseemly to me in some way I will turn it off
