As an American, 9/11 is a date never to be forgotten. It is a date in history that evoked emotions in all humanity. Those who love the USA and stood in solidarity, grieved with the loss of innocent people who died in the name of religion masked by hatred. Those who hate our country felt a sense of accomplishment as the World Trade Center the Pentagon, and the White House were targeted that fateful day.


We were left in extreme bewilderment, to learn that terror had entered our shores, lived and planned their tactics amongst us. They worked and broke bread with Americans, boarded our aircraft and broke our hearts on 9/11.


Thousands of families lost loved ones during the attack of the Twin Towers in New York, but the fabric of who we are were on board Flight 93. Those brave Americans who received word on their cell phones of the destruction of the World Trade Center, the partial destruction of the Pentagon, and the possible destruction of the White House, would not and did not let the final act happen.


In line with their bravery, the Land of the Free and Home of the Brave Americans on board Flight 93 instead gathered their strength, their integrity, their patriotism, united, and overtook the hijackers of Flight 93.


Imagine yourself in their shoes. Your fate is sealed. Today you die. Your beautiful country is being attacked. You’ve said your good-byes. Yet you gather yourself, you stand strong, you unite in courage and all that is good about America rises-- you are on board an aircraft headed to destroy the most symbolic building every built, the White House--you unite, then sabotage their final act. Flight 93, crew and passengers crashes in an open field hundreds of miles from the White House.


Americans are a unique fabric unlike no other. You can tear us down, but that attempt only makes us stronger and more united. We’re not perfect, we have our own internal shortcomings, but when danger is imminent, we huddle, we pray, we act and we survive. White, black, brown, that is who we are.


Flight 93, we stand in awe of your bravery, your patriotism and your final hour. You are what it means to be a proud American.
