Message Follows:

Today was a tragedy for all of America and to my family, a very personal one. Lynn and my Niece Liz's husband, Jeremy Glick was on United flight 93 this morning. When the Hijackers took control of flight 93. Jeremy called my niece who in-turn conferenced him to 911. Jeremy relayed to the police what was happening as the hijacking unfolded. As our niece Liz listened, Jeremy told the police there were three Arab terrorists with knives and a large red box that they claimed contained a bomb. Jeremy tracked the second by second details and relayed them to the police by phone. After several minutes of describing the scene, Jeremy and several other passengers decided there was nothing to lose by rushing the hijackers. Although United Flight 93 crashed outside of Pittsburgh, with the loss of all souls. Jeremy and the other patriotic heroes saved the lives of many people on the ground that would have died if the Arab terrorists had been able to complete their heinous mission.

Please offer your prayers for all of those who perished or were injured in this tragic of all days and to our niece Liz Glick and her 2-month-old child, Emerson, who are left without their loving Husband and Father.

May we remember Jeremy and the other brave souls as heroes, soldiers and Americans' on United flight 93 whom so gallantry gave their lives to save many others.

Lynn, our four adult children and I are headed to New York to be with our family during this time of great sadness

All of my best,


We find heroism in many places.

I'm still wondering what was in the red box. Chemical warfare?

If I needed to subdue the passengers in a plane, the easiest way would be to threaten them with a bomb. Chemical warfare would require that the hijackers carried gas masks with them, which would raise suspicion at any airport.

there is obviously no need for gas masks. did they expect to survive? this was a suicide mission.

if they didn't have the gas masks, then it wouldn't have been an effective ruse.

They didn't need a real bomb since their goal was to run the plane into a target, so they used an empty box as a diversion to subdue the passengers so they could take over the jet.

If they tried to smuggle a bomb on board _each plane_ they would have increased their odds of getting caught by orders of magnitude, reducing their chances of success.

A friend of mine's family lives near Pittsburgh. I can only offer my gratitude and condolences to the families of those who sacrificed their lives to bring down that 'plane before it killed and injured even more people.

Blessed Be.

Condolences.... (5.00 / 1) (#9)

I'd like to offer my greatest condolences to Lynn Glick, and the rest of the family. Your husband was a very brave man, and I'll have to tell you it brought tears to my eyes to read that you are widowed, and your son is fatherless. On a brighter note, you have something in your world that will always keep your husband in your heart, Emerson. This is alot more then alot of people have right now, personally, I lost my fiance in the WTC attacks, we had planned to get married in march, and kids were following soon after, we were together for about 5 years now.

I'd like to take a moment here, and voice my opinion on the bastards that are responsible for this. You took the greatest thing in my life away, you took the greatest thing in many people's lives away. You cowardly attacked the innocent, you walked into my life and ripped it apart, and what hurts the most is that your a faceless man and I can't do anything about it.
