WASHINGTON -- Universal Pictures says it will donate $1.15 million this week toward a memorial to the passengers and crew who perished aboard United Flight 93 on Sept. 11, 2001 _ addressing concerns of a lawmaker who has blocked legislation to buy land for the project.
The donation from Universal, which last week released 'United 93,' a film about the flight, brings to $9 million the private donations so far. Organizers hope to raise $30 million to build the memorial near Shanksville, Pa., where the plane crashed."
