I've visited Ground Zero in NY several times since 9/11 and it does feel like sacred ground even though at those times it looked like a construction site. I would like to make a pilgrimage to Shanksville sometime; that's probably even more moving when you consider that all those victims were conscious that they were making the ultimate sacrifice.

I've never been to any of the sites, but have heard the Ground Zero experience is very moving. I'd like to go ... to Shanksville too. Great point about their conscious decision.

I am planning to visit both Ground Zero and Shanksville in the coming year. I think it is important to acknowledge these sites as I have Valley Forge for example many times. It boggles my mind to know that I live so near to where major battles took place, and decisions were made that created this country. We need to remember our roots and how much was sacrificed for us. It is up to all of us to make a better world.

Thanks for the thoughts, Gwyn. Some sacrificed by choice; others did not.
