God Bless The Courage Of The Passengers And Crew Of Flight 93
11 September 2005 | by UAF-NanooksSee all my reviews

This movie is an excellent way for all of us to never forget what happened on September 11th, 2001. We need to always remember all of those innocent people who died because of a madman. In The Flight That Fought Back we are brought into that day through news reports and interviews with friends and relatives of the passengers and crew of Flight 93. When cowards take over Flight 93 and plan to crash it into the White House or US Capital the best of America came forward to fight back: the crew and passengers of Flight 93. I can only hope that I will be as brave as those Americans if I'm ever confronted with this type of situation. God Bless you all for you are all true American Heroes and you will never be forgotten.

And to you Osama Bin Laden cowards may win battles they will not win the war.
