Exploring the Boundaries of Heroes, Celebrities and Role Models after 9/11: Lessons from Shanksville
Unformatted Document Text:  Lessons from Shanksville p. 13 knew someone in these areas were more likely to visit the Pentagon ( χ 2 (1, N = 437) = 27.7, p < .001) and/or visit the World Trade Center ( χ 2 (1, N = 437) = 4.1, p < .05) temporary memorials Hypothesis 2 predicted that respondents who believe that those on board UA Flight 93 are heroes would more likely leave a memorial item at one or more of the 9/11 memorial sites. This hypothesis was not supported by the research results. Respondents who believed in the heroism of the passengers and crew, excluding the terrorists (about 94 percent of the sample) were not more likely to leave a memorial item at the Shanksville site ( χ 2 (1, N = 437) = .74, p = .39) or at the New York City or Pentagon sites ( χ 2 (1, N = 437) = .57, p = .81). A total of 17 percent of the respondents left items at the Shanksville memorial and about five percent left memorial items at the World Trade Center or Pentagon sites. Hypothesis 3, which predicted that respondents who met family members of those killed on board UA Flight 93 would more likely leave a memorial item at the Shanksville crash site, was supported by the research results ( χ 2 (1, N = 437) = 10.1, p < .001) . Nearly 11 percent of those who visited the Shanksville site left one or more memorial items. The fourth hypothesis, which predicted that respondents who had a memorial in their home would more likely leave a memorial item at one of the 9/11 memorial sites, was also supported. Those who reported having a memorial in their home (27 percent of the sample) were more likely to leave a memorial item at the Shanksville crash site ( χ 2 (1, N = 437) = 56.2, p < .001) or at the World Trade Center or Pentagon memorial sites
