9/11 Anniversary, Flight 93 Memorial (photos)

A young woman (who asked to remain nameless) pauses to reflect on the lives lost on Flight 93. Being of Muslim heritage, her parents refused to attend the anniversary due to fear of alienation.
President Barack Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama pause at the rock to reflect. The boulder marks the spot where Flight 93 went down.
Retired officer, Sam Aroles of Cleveland, takes a photograph of the tokens left behind at the memorial. "I think it's just remarkable how items left behind can touch us all in such a deep way.
The families of the Flight 93 victims were honored at the anniversary while a tolling of the bells was held for each of the lives lost.
