For Amy,

A memorial has been built in Grapevine, Texas (close to DFW) to honor the 33 members of the flight crews who died that day in all four aircraft on 9/11. The memorial can be viewed or visited by those who wish to remember and honor the flight crews. Flight Attendant Amy Sweeney’s name, as one of the 33 members, is also inscribed on this beautiful and awe-inspiring uniquely-designed memorial. To the credit of the founders of this beautiful memorial, they wrote: “As you return to visit in a quieter moment, please remember that this site is sacred ground. Walk quietly, speak softly, pray if you will, cry if you must; but always look to the skies.”

They also wrote:

“In the early morning hours of 9/11/2001, Flight Crews and passengers on four flights leaving Boston, Dulles, and Newark were faced with an unimaginable level of terrorism perpetrated by groups of suicidal fanatics. Unaware of their murderous intentions, crews initially reacted as they had been trained; protect the lives of their passengers by co-operating with the hijackers. Using this, the terrorists gained control of the aircraft and cockpits. Pilots were either murdered or constrained in the passenger cabins. Flight Attendant Amy Sweeney, along with other crew members performed gallantly in the face of the terrorists and their initial aggression. Their commitment and courage during the opening hours of 9/11 exemplified a level never before tested in the history of aviation.

“It is a deep belief that the crew members on those planes participated, probably physically, in some of the battles within the cockpits and passenger areas to limit the damage and lives taken by the terrorists.”

On the morning of September 11, 2001, the residents of my town banded together to mourn for the lives lost as we watched the news of the attack on the World Trade Center. I never knew Amy Sweeney or Betty Ong personally but I honor these two beautiful, brave, and selfless women who will go down in history as true American Heroes.

What a brave woman to have the presence of mind to get the seat numbers. The world may have never known if it wasn't for her.

As an Irishman I wish to pass on my condolence to your family. I know a lot of Irish/Americans have their heart in Ireland and I'm sure yours was after reading your husbands lovely comments. Ireland remembers 9/11 today and you are in my prayers as is your family today.

Adh Mor (God bless).

Has it been nine years since we've seen each other?! Amy, I miss you so much and love you so much. May you rest in peace, and may I see you when God brings in the new system of things in Rev 21.

She was really brave, and I don't like what happened. I wish it never happened, but it did. And I wish I could go back in time to stop it.

*** Posted by john angelo on 2010-09-09 ***

God bless you, Amy. You will always be remembered with love and appreciation.

Your story and many others inspired me to perform a tribute concert entitled "Destinations," a four-hour concert on Santa Monica Pier in L.A. I selected various pieces from established artists as well as my own compositions. I'm traveling to New York this summer and hopefully will do another. I don't know you, but from your photo and bio, I wish I did.

You shine like a diamond FROM HEAVEN...Thank you for being a hero! We will never forget you!

I read about Madeline Sweeney in a book I borrowed from my school library in NC. It is UNBELIEVABLE what she did. R.I.P. to her and the other heroes and victims of 9/11. The Sweeney family will be in my prayers

I think Madeline was very brave when she tried to save the plane by calling her supervisors at Logan. May she rest in peace and look over her two children from heaven. Think of her as an angel because she is here in spirit in our HEARTS.

You shine.

It is heart-rending to know (after watching the Discovery documentary) that this mother of two did not fail her call of duty, despite the fact that she was staring death in the face.

It is people like her who defeat the basis of such senseless attacks. The loss that her family, and especially her children, face can never be replaced by words. She has left behind something that her children will be very proud of some day in the future. I know that as a mother, a woman, a professional, and a peace-loving human being. May she and all the other brave souls rest in peace.

I'm honored to share a birthday with you. I'll always think of you and your bravery on that day---I never met you, but I'm inspired by you.

God Bless you.

  • what kind of person he/she was, 
  • what nice points you remember about him/her, 
  • what kind of relationship you had with him/her, 
  • what you two perhaps did together, 
  • what he/she meant to you, 
  • or other things about him/her might be especially encouraging for other people.

This web site is intended solely as a means of allowing all of us to express our grief and sympathy in behalf of the people who lost their lives, and also our love and compassion towards those who lost loved ones and friends in the 9/11/01 tragedy.

Our hearts are very touched with concern in behalf of those people, and it is to them that we dedicate this web site. It is not our intent to venture into the realms of WHO should face judgement, to take responsibility for those terrible events, because we have no way of knowing for sure who all might fall into that category. Therefore, any letters or notes written passing judgment upon any person or group will not be published on this site. We do NOT want this site to be a base for expressions of hatred, but only for expressions of LOVE!

Moreover, 9-11Heroes.us reserves the right to choose which comments to post and also to edit the comments for spelling, punctuation, grammar, or edit comments that are unkind or offensive in some manner.
