I'm going to say something here that may upset some folks, but I believe I have earned the privelege of saying it.
There is a hierarchy to the events of that day. First the Towers, then the Pentagon, then the crash of Flight 93. I know this is a result of the shear numbers of each event. But it just really bugs me that on a day full of heroes, the people of Flight 93 seem to come in "third place".
I know I'm not saying it well, but I hope that everybody is able to understand what I'm trying to say.
To me, on a day of heroes, the greatest, bravest, heroes of them all were the passengers of Flight 93.

To paraphrase John:
No greater love has a man, but that he give his life for another.
MANY HEROES THAT DAY!!!
Flight 93 they are BRAVE AMERICAN HEROES!!!
The first to fight back real AMERICAN PATRIOTS
