Walking into the Pentagon Memorial in Washington D.C., where a hijacked American Airlines Flight 77 took the lives of 189 people on September 11, 2001, a dense quietness blankets the air. The memorial is a public place, but the atmosphere is intensely private. No one can tell you how to feel about the memorial, just like no one can tell you how to feel about the events of that day. It is a place to take a moment to reflect in your own personal way.
