"Lets Roll"

This is the winning design for the site commemorating the intentional grounding of US Flight 93 into Pennsylvania, well short of any of the jihadists targets.

I noticed this first at Michelle Malkin
she provides a link to local coverage.

Increasingly myself and others begin to think that this is
par for the course?

My brother suggest a slight re-design necessitating the use of a few adjoining acres.

I saw this information earlier today @
and got so angry that I could barely stand myself. Here's the letter I fired off to the architect:

Dear Mr. Murdoch,

Using the crescent, the symbol of Islam, is an unacceptable theme for a memorial to Americans who may have saved one of our nation's landmarks. By using the symbol, you are giving tacit support of radical Islam, the ideology which perpetrated the 9/11 attacks. Furthermore, use of the crescent desecrates the memory of those American patriots who died in the service of this nation.

Two years ago, I personally visited the Shanksville site. I was so moved by the impromptu tributes there! Even the grafitti in the portable toilet honored those patriots aboard Flight 93. This site in Shanksville deserves a better tribute than the symbol you are proposing.

If you persist in using the crescent design, you will have, in effect, placed the equivalent of a swastika at Auschwitz. Would you do such an insensitive thing? Worse, would you so glorify the hate-filled ideology responsible for the slaughter of millions?

Be an American, sir! Do not use the crescent as a theme for the Flight 93 Memorial!

The architect's email =

I also fired off a letter to the U.S. Park Service. Here's the link for that:

I also plan to contact all my representatives on Capitol Hill.

PS: Thanks for stopping by my site. I'll need to add you to my regular rounds!

Nice work on the crescent. Maybe we'll get lucky and we'll keep your design and smash the crescent before the next wave paint it green. Grrr.

wow, that is just unreal. How exactly did this get past ANYONE in America? This is like some kind of voodoo magic CAIR used or something.

What next, we going to change our dollar bills to say "In Allah We Trust"?

Help me out here. Is this is to honor the passengers and crew of flight 93 or the terrorist? It needs to go back to the drawing board.

I've heard that the designer is thinking about some changes. I hear there was to much outrage from bloggers and talk radio. Good job all, keep it up.

God Bless America, God Save The Republic.

I got some interesting info while trying to answer my own Question Of The Week on Disaster Planning. I posted a rather long answer.
