Flight 93 to be remembered with totem pole
Tuesday, August 26, 2003
BELLINGHAM, Wash. -- A year ago, carvers from the Lummi Tribe crafted a 13-foot-tall "healing pole" and hauled it to a New York state park to honor those who died in the Sept. 11, 2001, attack on the World Trade Center.
This year, the tribe has made a second totem pole for the Shanksville, Pa., site where United Airlines Flight 93 crashed on that same day after the passengers tried to wrest control of the plane from terrorists. Carver Jewell James said he chose the design of a bear holding a human because the passengers "had to have the strength of a bear to do what they did." rest of story
