New York Fire Department employees Christine Lee and Rick Snyder hug after the dedication ceremony for a cross made out of steel from the World Trade Center Sunday in Shanksville, Pa. The 2-ton, 14-foot-high cross sits on a concrete base shaped like the Pentagon at the Shanksville Volunteer Fire Co., just a few miles from where the United Airlines Flight 93 crashed into the ground on Sept. 11. The cross made a 311-mile journey from Brooklyn on Saturday, accompanied by hundreds of motorcyclists, many of them current or retired New York firefighters. The cross is not part of the official $58 million Flight 93 National Memorial, which will be built in phases and is expected to be about 40 percent complete by the 10th anniversary of the attacks.
