Heroes of Flight 93

Brave Men
we honor your courage
that dark 9-1-1
when blackness came
unwanted & unexpected.
We honor you
men who’d never met
never planned to be heroes.

We know not what you did
but know what you did.
you found much to live for.
You show us
to truly live
you must be prepared
to die.

We honor your courage.
You stepped out in faith
knowing you faced death.
You stood up for right
shed chains of fear.
No longer victims
but conquerors
of evil.

You fought for freedom.
Fought to save
those you never knew.
We honor you.
We give you praise.
No marble monument adequate
to demonstrate
our gratitude.

Help us honor
your courage
your action.
May we too
stand up to evil.
Prepared to sacrifice all.
May we honor your courage
with our lives.

I just finished watching on TV "The Flight that Fought Back". It brought those heros who started the day, just getting on a plane, into focus. This poem is inadequate to show how much I appreciate what they did.

In their story is so much hope. No matter how bleak it seems, you can still do what is right. Never give up hope.

May we be inspired in our lives to do what is right. To stand up to evil. May we honor their courage with our lives.
