I would like to tell the story of another hero. My brother Major Steve Long was at a meeting at the pentagon on sept, 11 he volenteered to be there, which makes me believe in fate, he didnt even work there , when the plane hit he was on the second floor in the front, he survived,the military told us that when the plane hit it knocked them all down and the lights went out they said my brother was so strong and his voice was so loud that his voice lead people out. He stayed to long . His autopsy report says he suvived for a half an hour , can you imagine what he saw that day. He died of carbon monoide poisioning and went down with the wall. It was six long days before we heard his fate. What a hero. He was an airborne Ranger and would have died gladly for his country, he has been first into everything since Grenadade , I finally felt safe with him in D.C. I hope as a nation we never forget.Sorry about the writing as my hands shake as I write this .I miss you Steve everyday is a struggle to get through. God Bless you Pesident Bush
