I can't believe it has taken this long to get started. But I am now looking forwards to seeing it get built!

After spending months wrangling for control of buildings and money at ground zero, politicians and a private developer gathered Thursday as excavation trucks rolled out to mark the beginning of construction of the Freedom Tower, the symbolic skyscraper designed to replace the destroyed World Trade Center.

Kind of going off from this, do you agree with a movie being made so fast about Flight 93? *

I was kind of shocked about it. *I thought that they could at least wait 10 to 15 years before making a movie about it, not 4 1/2 years.

That is a good question.

It's my view that we never really had a chance to reflect on what happened. To sit down as a nation and reflect on it. To see the people of flight 93 as heros. Whom I feel should posthumously be awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom (http://www.medaloffreedom.com/).

How come we haven't made a bigger deal of this?

Maybe as we think about this more, we will see more heros to award this medal too?

What's your view?

Ok, I have a conspiracy theory about Flight 93...and I may be nutz, and I may be out in left field and I don't want to offend anyone. *But I personally feel that the flight was shot down by the USAF. *I don't want to take anything away from the passengers on there, but that is just my theory.

If that were the case, our government can't keep anything secret and I feel this would certainly be leaked by someone in the know. There would be plenty of people in the know if it happened. That is my thought at least.
