Students Visit the Flight 93 Memorial In Shanksville, Pennsylvania

September 28th, 2023

September 11, 2001, is a day America will never forget. While under attack, our nation witnessed extraordinary acts of heroism and bravery. First responders rushed into the World Trade Center and the Pentagon to save as many lives as possible, many losing their own in the process.

Thousands of miles above a rural field near Shanksville, Pennsylvania, the 40 brave passengers and crew of Flight 93 gave their lives to prevent another attack on our nation.

Last month, we had the honor of bringing high school students to the Flight 93 National Memorial in Shanksville, PA. For these young Americans, it was a chance to experience and learn about the significance of 9/11 in person as history was brought to life.

Students were able to tour the Flight 93 Memorial and visit the Wall of Names, where they silently paid their respects to the heroes of Flight 93.

It is our sincere hope that this experience will inspire these students to do good in their own communities upon their return home.

Please take a moment to watch highlights from this event, including powerful testimonials from the students in attendance.
