A day of terror, a day of heroes:

When Jeremy Glick called his wife, his first question was an attempt to confirm something another passenger had heard on his spousal call: was the World Trade Center story true?

Lizzy Glick paused, thought for a minute, swallowed hard, and told him the truth. Yes, they had. Moments later, still on the line with her husband, Lizzy Glick saw that another plane had run into the Pentagon. She passed that information on as well to her husband, who relayed it to the other passengers.

Jeremy Glick then told her that the passengers were about to take a vote and decide if they should rush the hijackers and attempt to foul up whatever evil plans they had.
They did, of course, and the rest is history. We as Americans should not let their deaths be in vain. We need to harness their spirit, and fight terrorism wherever and whenever we can. Terrorists are like any other thug: they prey on the weak. They don't want a fight, they only want victims.

And, as terrorists are like thugs, terrorism is like crime: it can happen anywhere, at any time.

Be prepared.
