Heroism amidst tragedy: Flight 93

Flight 93, as probably many of you know, was the fourth plane in the 9/11 attacks that was taken over by Al Qaeda terrorists. Their intended target was reportedly the U.S. Capitol building. But thankfully it never it reached its target. Before the terrorists could complete their mission, the brave men and women of flight 93 resisted them and the plane crashed in a field in Pennsylvania, fragmenting the plane and the people inside of it. Those people, passengers from three different countries included, gave their lives to prevent the continuation of the horrible attacks that has already happened that day. [spoiler]For me, that's why I can't joke about this. The beauty of this nation, and most Democratic nations in the world, is that we have the freedom to speak our mind freely. You are more than free to joke about this stuff. I'm not offended or angry when I see these jokes, I've seen it before and it would be silly to keep getting offended every year. But to me, the sacrifice of the people of flight 93, whose bodies were fragmented upon crashing, will never be a joking matter. The mass murder of humans should never be taken lightly, in my mind. If you do joke about it, I hope you still respect and remember that 2,977 people died this day, eighteen years ago, and I'm sure most of you do. [/spoiler]

    My dad was about to leave on a business trip to that place when it happened, and he told me his cousin was late for work that day and was currently on a subway heading to a building that was under the towers....
