Dear Betty,

Happy belated birthday (Feb 5, 2011). Rest in peace.

Happy birthday, Betty! You would've been 55 today. May you rest in peace.

This was a tragedy for everyone especially the families of those who died that day.
They will never be forgotten like Betty and the other members of the crew of flight 11.
May their spirit rest in peace now and forever until justice is done <3

I know I could never have been so calm and alert and selfless as Betty Ong was. She made herself a target by swiftly initiating contact with authorities hoping to be of help. Her parents raised a beautiful human-being. I am so sorry her family lost her so early in her life but I also thank them for their role in who she became.

For Betty Ong,

It could last years, decades, or centuries until a lot of us tend to forget 9/11. Please, though, always remember Betty's life because of the positive impact she had in the world around her through her short life. A world without Betty with us, is like a world without sunshine. Miss you a lot.

Betty Ong,

You are my heroine—a true diamond.

To Betty Ong, who was and still is the highest example for leadership, safety, and mission accomplishment when faced with the worst insurmountable crisis when she died on 9/11.  To put it in the right perspective:

The sword of Damocles is frequently used in allusion to a tale, epitomizing the imminent and ever-present peril faced by those in positions of leadership from medieval era. More generally, it is used to denote the sense of foreboding engendered by the precarious situation, especially one in which the onset of tragedy is restrained only by a delicate trigger or chance. Moreover, it can be seen as a lesson in the importance of fully understanding another person's situation or experience. Referring to the fact of numerous high risks factors inherent in their duties in their job descriptions, flight attendants work under an unpredictable threat of terrorism, a sword of Damocles, hanging by the slenderest of threads, capable of being cut at any moment by accident, or miscalculation, or by madness. Such is clearly the case in today's world faced with terrorism involving planes in flight. So many possibilities could happen, given their limited resources and restricted space of the flight attendant's work environment. Betty’s bravery showed that on the morning of 9/11. No other occupation is comparable.

God bless you, Betty Ong. You gave your life for that. I feel bad for you.

*** Posted by Brandon on 2010-09-18 ***

I think of you often. There will always be a sadness in my heart for you and for all the other victims.

*** Posted by Jerry Williams on 2010-09-15 ***

Sad day. I can't believe someone would take human lives like that. She was a brave woman, and she's my idol of the month.

Dear Betty,

Thank you for all you tried to do for flight 11. I heard you for the first time and I'm REALLY sorry that you had to leave the earth the way you did R.I.P Betty Ong <3

*** Posted by Mona on 2010-09-12 ***

Every flight attendant I meet receives my love and respect.

*** Posted by Mark S. Recer on 2010-09-12 ***

Betty, I heard your voice for first time today 9-11-10.  I am blown away by your courage and professionalism. You were so brave, Betty. You were our first hero that day.

*** Posted by mary mckenna on 2010-09-12 ***

Flight attendants were the first soldiers and responders to the attacks of September 11, 2001. It was through your bravery that we first learned of the attacks. I am so proud of you and your flight attendant colleagues. We will never forget and thank the flight attendants for what they do to keep the passengers and the skies safe.

In Memory of Betty Ong,

This is Chris Williams from Sugar Land, TX, and I was touched by the part you played in the most tragic event this country has EVER seen, and on this day, September 11, 2010, 9 years later, I ask God to bless your family.

One Love

Dear Betty,
today I have heard the first time about you in a documentary. Your calmness and courage impressed me a lot. You are a real human hero. In the call you asked if anybody is still there (in the line). I can only answer. Yes, and we still hear you. We will never forget you and all the heroes of 9/11.
God bless.
My condolences to all the families and friends.
Greetings and hugs

Darwing from Chile
