Thank you. Many distant cousins fought that day, some did not come home. I have mixed emotions about the name Patriot Day being applied nationally to 9-11. Is it part of moving our Founding to the backwaters of American History? I hope not. However, on balance, the crew and passengers of Flight 93 were truly the Minutemen of their day and time so I will take comfort in that aspect. God Bless the Flight 93 pax for their courage and Remember all who served some 236 years ago today.
Amen to that.
I’ve often said that when they found out what was going on, they activated the militia. They gathered intelligence, conferred, looked around to see what weaponry was available, and all that they had was a drink cart and bowls of boiling water. So, they said, “Let’s roll,” and did what they could with what they had.
