I watched a documentary on the History Channel about Flight 11. When my children came home from school they also watched it. I could see how Amy Sweeney is a true hero. She supplied the seat numbers of the terrorists for the authorities to know. God Bless her children. Amen

Thank you for your friendship, laughter, and smiles on those days when we were flight attendants together. I will never forget when you would tell me on the employee bus that getting out the door saying "good-bye" to your children was the most difficult part of your trip. All my heart and prayers are with you always.

Amy is a true hero. After reading about her, I was so sad and scared for her, thinking about what her last couple of minutes must have been like, particularly as she realized the intent of the hijackers. She was clearly very brave and held her composure longer than I or anyone I know could have.

She was very brave for what she did during the attack. She is really an inspiration to young people.

Madeline Sweeney is a hero because, after all these years of study, I have concluded there was no background noise on the jet because, by keeping calm, she made people pass without knowing their fate, even though she knew! HERO, PERIOD.

You were a shining example of a true heroine! I never met you, yet you left a trace in my heart! Thanks, Amy, for being so brave!

To the family of Amy,

The day she was born, you thought she was a blessing only to you, but God's plan was to have her be a blessing to America, too! Thank you for raising such a beautiful person. My heart is with you and prayers, always till my dying day. America will never forget her bravery on that day. She touched lives here, and she was everything to the passengers of Flight 11. Even though we will never know the words of love, courage, strength, and faith that she spoke to them, one thing is for sure: She was a true blessing to them, and may those blessings be passed on to your hearts and lives.

Hi. This is Micheal Woodward. I was the manger of American Airlines airport from 1994 to 2001. On September 11, 2001, a beautiful day for me, I was working in my office. I had heard one of the ladies who was working in the office say very loudly that a flight attendant has been stabbed. Then the call broke off as I heard. Then I went over to her desk and said, "What's happening?" And she said, "There's a hijacking." Then she called again and said, "Yes, this is Madeline Sweeney on board Flight 11. This plane is being hijacked. Two flight attendants have been stabbed." She later went on to say also that a passenger in first class was killed and that the hijackers had mace. I asked her what did she see. She said, "I see water and buildings. We're flying low. We're flying very, very low. We're flying way too low. Oh, my god! OH, MY GOD!" Then the call broke off.

P.S. My thoughts and prayers go out to the family of Madeline. She is one of many true heroes of 9/11.

What a wonderful website to honour the life of the late Madeline Sweeney. I didn't know her personally, but I admired her courage, strength and professionalism during the terrible ordeal that she was faced with. My love and thoughts are with her family, and especially her husband, who is obviously still grieving and missing her so much--God bless you.

Hi, sweet. It's me, Michael, your husband. I love you every day of my life. Our 2 kids have grown up, and one of them made a poem in your memory. We miss you every day of our lives, but we keep going forward with our lives. We miss you every single day, baby. Last week we went to Doe Castle, the castle of the history of your family, and my how our anut sisters were born and much more, and we talked about you, and you made a plaque for you of rock honoring your memory of how much you meant to us and how much we love you. This one's for you, honey:

Madline Amy Sweeny is a very brave woman for what she did on 9/11.

*** Posted by Jay on 2007-09-20 ***

Madeline Sweeney, your story left an imprint on my heart. I am also a single parent. I did not know you but I particularly was touched by who you were and what you did. I wish I could have met you or comforted your family somehow. What did end up doing was sending my zeller's points which were converted into cash. I wonder who was helped was it maybe your family or someone else's. I wish I could meet your family because I would give them all hugs and kisses from Victoria, B.C. Canada.

I never knew this woman or anything about her, but I know that on flight 11, she kept her passengers calm and relaxed, and I think this woman was very brave to do what she did for her passengers. She was a true hero in my eyes, and may she live on in our hearts.
