i appreciate that the commission released betty's awe inspiring words.  her cool thinking truly brings light to what happened on aa11 and the other flights as well.  her insights into the situation did a great service to those who dedicate their lives to keeping america safe.  i will never forget her.  i thank god that her parents brought her into this world and pray for her siblings.  betty is the hearts of the nation and the world.  and i agree with a previous comment in betty's honor.  there should be a bronze statue of her in every aa flight terminal.  or better yet, in every airport.  she must be remembered!

Thank you so much for all you did.  Your bravery will never be forgotten, and you will be remembered as a true American hero.

Hearing her voice for the first time, coming from my car radio, I felt as if I was with her and with all the people on AA11... I couldn't breathe... feeling so sad. Maybe she sensed a danger but her voice certainly sounded calm and was in control. My heart and thoughts go to her family and friends and to the people on board of AA11.

I was deeply touched reading the stories and obituary about Betty Ong.  Such a sweet and brave girl.  I wept copiously.

Betty Ong died an American hero.  Listening to her last words brings to tears to my eyes, and words simply can't describe how I feel right now after hearing her tape.  I am overwhelmed with the sadness of what happened during those minutes.

Betty Org of American Flight 11 was a wonderful person who showed great emotional and responsible actions during her phone call to operations before her plane crashed into the WTC on 9/11.  A tribute to her is the least I can do to herald her bravery and the people who gave their lives on that flight.  They show us we must be strong in the wake of the terrorist actions against people throughout the world.  Bless them all and through their bravery and sacrifice of their lives let us all resolve to be better and stronger in the present and in the future to make the world a better place.

To hear her voice and see her photograph on the news today really made me sad.  I send my thoughts and prayers to her family and the rest of the families who lost loved ones that day.  God bless the Armed forces of the USA and every other country that are today doing their duties in light of this terrible Tragedy.

To the Family of Betty Ong,
I could hardly listen to the tape of your daughter.  My heart goes out to you.  My daughter was in Tower One.  She worked for Cantor Fitzgerald.  I know how you feel.  It has been tough.  Your daughter must have been a remarkable person.  She is a hero to me.  Know that my thoughts and prayers are with you.

I just heard the tape.  I'm very saddened.  I feel very grateful to know 3 years later of such a beautiful person and how strong she was.

I never knew Betty, but reading her story of her last moments here with us, i can only say that she must have been a wonderful woman.  My prayers go out to her family and friends. May she never be forgotten.

My thoughts are with the family of this very courageous and strong woman. Betty is my hero and I know you are very proud of her. Thank you for giving her the strength that she displayed during her phone call.

Just heard the tape of Betty's phone conversation - without question one of the most awe-inspiring things I have heard in my entire life.  There should be bronze statues of this heroic woman at every AA building on the planet.

Betty Ong she was a brave person. Until today I heard about
her calm voice during AA11 hajacking. She was so sweet and
I will remember her forever.

Betty Ong was obviously a very courageous woman.  My heart goes out to her and her family.  How sad!

*** Posted by Angela on 2004-01-27 ***

At the sept 11th commission today, they played a recording of Betty Ong, a flight attendant from flight 11.  It was so tragic. she sounded so calm, she was really trying to hold it together.  One of the people on the other end, Lydia Gonzalez, was present at the hearing today. She was very good.  The whole thing was heartbreaking, I will be bawling the rest of my life over the image of a sparkly blue jambox on the witness stand, & this woman's last words coming out of it.
