Despite the public outcry, hearings and demand for design change ………
Call for Congressional investigation of Islamic symbolism in the Flight 93
Why the drag lines were removed from the Flight 93 crash site Alex Rawls, Error Theory
When the passengers and crew of flight 93 smashed their murderers to nothing on
an open expanse of western Pennsylvania coal country, two towering sentinels
stood silent witness to the heroic tragedy.
“Up on Skyline Rd.,” the
news shot around Shanksville and Somerset, “up by the drag lines”
It is hard to imagine a more fitting marker than these twin colossi. Before the
hijackers could send Flight 93 into the White House or the Capitol building, a
random draw of forty of our fellow countrymen massed a towering determination to
fight back. Their effort to save their own lives ended beneath those artifacts
of Pennsylvania’s own native grit and ingenuity, but their success in defending
their country will live forever.
Those silent sentinels could and should
have endured as well, and they would have, if not for one man who was determined
to see them go: architect Paul Murdoch, the designer of the terrorist
memorializing Crescent of Embrace design. As the press reported
at the unveiling of the crescent design:
The Flight 93 temporary memorial, the draglines and Skyline Drive
will be removed to leave the landscape as natural as possible, Murdoch wrote in
a narrative that accompanied the design.
