Bid to Thwart Hijackers May Have Led to Pa. Crash (

If this is indeed how it happened, if a group of passengers on United Airlines Flight 93 got together and decided to take on the hijackers before they reached their target...

God, what courage. What selflessness. They would have known that their struggle would mean death for all of them. They would have known that they were sacrificing themselves to save God knows how many innocent people. I weep for these heroes, these great, incredible, marvelous human beings that stood up to terror and evil and did not blink. Somehow that plane ended up in a Pennsylvania field instead of the White House, or the Capitol Building, or whatever its final target would have been. If this group of passengers was responsible for that... kids, that's true heroism.
