SHANKSVILLE, the United States - When Dale Nacke talked about the last moments of his late brother Joey before the hijacked United Airlines Flight 93 crashed 20 years ago, he said his brother didn't make any phone call because he wouldn't share that burden with anybody.

"He wouldn't put that kind of pain on the rest of us, so he didn't make any phone calls. That isn't our brother," Dale, 49, told Xinhua on a chilly Friday night after a Luminaria Ceremony at the plane's crash site surrounded by meadows and hills, located in the Pennsylvania countryside outside of Shanksville.
