The Tower of Voices at the Flight 93 Memorial in Shanksville, Somerset County. Standing 93 feet high, it features a wind chime for each of the 40 individuals who died on Flight 93 when the hijacked plane crashed in the field on that fateful day.
Two years ago, it was my great honor to attend the 16th annual remembrance ceremony at the Flight 93 National Memorial and there I took note of what fallen passenger Todd Beamer had with him on 9/11, a book entitled “A Life of Integrity” by Howard Hendricks.
