> Ferrick, thanks for this post. It gave me chills, but the warmest ones I've ever felt.

That's the perfect way to put it. Ferrick, your post moved me, and Eugene, this one simple line moves me also.

I've since heard reports of this story on the news and interviews with those who received the phone calls of those who were resolved to retake the plane. They knew they would die, but they would die fighting.

The deaths of thousands is emotionally devastating. The heroic sacrifices of ordinary people is a flood of...I don't know what -- encouragement? Blessing? Hope? Healing?

I think most of us wonder how we would hold up under conditions like that. But we all hope we never have to face that test. How very grateful we should be to those who meet that test with courage and prevail.
