Built by a local church, San Antonio's Memorial to
those lost on 9/11/2001 is dignified and attractive.
The artfully 'damaged' wall in the back symbolizes the Pentagon
while the curved walls represent the twin towers of the World
Trade Center. The shadow is made by a tall steel tower with
an eternal flame, in honor of the brave souls aboard Flight 93.
The Eternal Flame
There is a fountain at the base of the tower.
The flag under the stars and stripes shows the current threat level.
Another of the four fountains at the site.
