I remember learning of the details of flight 93 while I was going threw physical therapy after the surgery on my ACL, meniscus disk and all that goes along with that. I remember thinking that rebuilding the leg after 6 weeks on crutches was such a small thing in comparison.
To know you are on a plane headed for your own death and destruction of a building. There is no help, no weapons, and little hope of survival even if you reclaim the plane. The men and women of flight 93, just as the Law Enforcement Officers and Fire Fighters responding to the fires demonstrated the greatest unselfish acts of heroism. The sacrifice is inspirational.
I realize my 20 mile ride today is a small thing, but as the ride was completed my small thing for them has been completed. The ˝ mark from my house for the ride was at the local monument dedicated to victims and families of September 11th.
