To all of the victims of September 11, 2001
May we never forget your courage and heroism that all of you did on that fateful day.
And to all the love ones that you left behind may we never forget, may we never forget.

My name is Gregg Juarez. I live in southern California. Today, even though I never knew this person, I am thinking of Betty because to me she has been the one who has moved me the most with the horrible events of this date. My fathers birthday is the 11th, and I remember waking up that morning thinking first of him. When I was a child, he told me he remembered exactly where he was when he first heard President Kennedy had been assassinated. He told me sometimes things happen, and you never forget the exact moment when you first heard of it. I am wheelchair bound and cannot drive, otherwise I would go wherever was necessary to show my good thoughts for her. Of all the single individuals from that day, I believe her bravery and beauty will for the rest of my life stay with me the most. My deepest thoughts and prayers go to her family and to the lucky ones who called her friend. In my thoughts I am leaving many flowers. This I say with only complete sincerity.

Betty, you are my hero. Rest in peace.

  I didn't know you personally, but after reading the story of your last moment, I can't help myself but feel a goose bump all over my body. My eyes were filled with tears of sadness and grief....
  My heart is overwhelmed with so much sorrow, and I can't imagine how much more your family, your love ones,and friends have gone through all these..
  It's a long way back to when it was happened.. sorrows and grievances have been lessened.. but your act of heroic bravery, will last in our hearts forever.....

We love you Betty....

Betty Ong has been inducted into the San Francisco, George Washington High School AlumniScope newsletter HALL OF MERIT as an outstanding GWHS Alumni. Her acts of heroic bravery as a Crew Member of American Airlines Flight 11 were read into the Congressional Record by House Representative Nancy Pelosi of San Francisco. And September 21 has been declared "BETTY ONG DAY" in San Francisco by then Mayor Willie Brown, so I am confident the memory of Betty Ann Ong as a 9/11 National Hero shall live on in the minds of us all.

I didn't know her, but I was moved to write this poem...

becky ong

you were such a pretty girl
i know that is always what
your father thought
watching his tears
with your motherís hand
on his back
sternly they sit
in the hearing
holding back
what they can
of western style

i saw your face today
a face I wonít see again
and I heard your
steady recording
on that eleventh day
of september

two stabbed
in first class
mace in the air
a locked cabin door

21 minutes

the time that was left
a good hot shower
a cross town trip
a long distance call
that we all should make
to heal wounds
release secrets
express joy
profess love

the call you would have made
if you had known.

Seeing her courage and calmness in hijack that took place and with little sign of fear in her voice I was really touched by her handling the situation on board. Myself a very weak person after seeing her actions in an episode in national geographics have got the determination to live and to move ahead.... Betty you are symbol of courage and fearlessness. Hats off to you. Thanks.

After watching tonight's movie I was very impressed with Betty and how she handled the situation on her flight. I hope her family knows how much, I am sure, her calm demeanor meant to everyone on the flight. You should be very proud of Betty as all Americans are five years later.

The day to remember Betty Ong. She was obviously a courageous and brave woman.

I don't know who Betty is either but when I watch the movies that they made about her, it showed her with lots of courage and she try to do all that should could to keep the passengers calm and do everything she could! Betty deserves a Metal Of Courage And Honor ~ I am sure she will be well missed by her family!

Terrorists can't steal one thing from us: Love and how much we love one another, What we will do for each other, no matter what happens we are there for each other and that is something that they didn't kill that day ~ That is The American Dream ~ Love One Another Just Like Christ Loves You ~

Thank you Betty. Five years later your story help me find that emotional place of remembrance so I can truly honor everyone we lost on this momentous anniversary. It's time to reflect and let those feelings flood our souls for them.

She was a true American hero.

Your life was taken so abruptly. After so many years, I like many others still honour your life and those whose lives were taken on that day.

*** Posted by BOON HONG on 2006-06-03 ***

I am so sorry that you were killed in this tragedy. God bless America.

I don't know who Betty Ong was, but for me she was a hero, i could'nt imagine what is her situation up there in the plane with her colleagues, she inspired me to become a flight attendant someday dispite the risks. My mother's heart goes out to her when we watched the re-enactment of Discovery Channel. Let me share this quote to all...
          "Death leaves a pain no one can steal,
            love leaves a memory no one ca steal."
            God bless us all!
