World War II veterans from Pittsburgh are finally getting their due with a memorial dedicated to them on the North Shore.
On the heels of the 10th anniversary of the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks, the families of the Flight 93 victims will face another difficult day with another solemn ceremony set to take place.
Part of the World Trade Center now stands as a lasting memorial here in our region.
On Saturday, a dedication of the first phase of the Flight 93 Memorial will come following years of controversy about how to honor the heroic passengers.
Center Elementary School in Plum became a gathering place for grieving friends and teachers. Brenna Griffith, 12, and her 8-year-old sister Mikaela, were students at the school. The girls, along with their mother Kimberly, died when their vehicle sank in the flash flood on Washington Boulevard Friday.
The timing was coincidental, but the federal advisory committee on developing a permanent memorial for Flight 93 met in Shanksville on Saturday. While relatives of the Flight 93 victims reviewed the progress on the memorial, the talk turned to the killing of Osama bin Laden.
The news of Osama bin Laden’s death spread quickly after President Barack Obama’s announcement Sunday night.
