Flight 93 Memorial
There has been a lot of text given to the proposed memorial for the brave men and women who died on Flight 93 on September 11, 2001.
The proposed memorial has been rightly criticized as surreptitiously inserting homage to Muslims with a crescent which latitudinally and longitudinally points toward Mecca.
After seeing its design, it’s obvious that its design is intentional and is nastily insensitive to the victims and their families.
Looking at the plaque which exists today, what else is needed?
I can understand the concern but I really don't think there is some conspiracy to incorporate islamic imagery into the memorial. I mean really, is that the claim? It's actually a pretty common architectural theme so I kind of feel like there is a lot of manufactured outrage.
