New details revealed about the final minutes of United Airlines Flight 93

‘I WILL FEAR NO EVIL’

Flight 93 was bound for San Francisco when hijackers commandeered the cockpit and took the controls. Through cell phone conversations to loved ones, a story of terrifying drama and great courage was pieced together to form a picture of what happened inside the 757.

The passengers banded together and decided to storm the cockpit and crash the plane before it could reach the hijackers’ intended target — either the White House or the U.S. Capitol in Washington D.C.

Passenger Todd Beamer, 32, recited the Lord’s Prayer and
the 23rd Psalm before famously calling out, “Are you ready? Okay. Let’s roll.” STORY HERE

Commemorate the attack

‘Men’s souls will be shaken…’

‘Some will never return.’

As America is torn apart with violent riots, needless deaths and senseless destruction in the name of race, let us not forget the true heroes of the past who gave their lives for us — on D-Day, June 6, 1944.

The darkness will be rent by noise and flame. Men’s souls will be shaken with the violences of war. 

They fight to end the conquest. They fight to liberate. They fight to let justice arise, and tolerance and good will among all people. They yearn for the end of battle, for their return to the haven of home. 

Some will never return.

President Franklin Delano Roosevelt

Look at the faces of these brave young men — many of them going to their death — and ask yourselves: Why do I shame their memory and their ultimate sacrifice with senseless violence? They fought and died for “tolerance and good will among all people.” Honor that and live by that code.
