CIRCLE OF TRUST/BOM:
Discussion about 9/11- how everyone who lost their lives or were involved in the events of the day started the day thinking it was another day. Regular people did amazing things, too many stories to list.
hijacked four fuel-loaded US commercial airplanes bound for west coast destinations. A total of 2,977 people were killed in New York City, Washington, DC and outside of Shanksville, Pennsylvania.
At the World Trade Center (WTC) site in Lower Manhattan, 2,753 people were killed when hijacked American Airlines Flight 11 and United Airlines Flight 175 were intentionally crashed into the north and south towers, or as a result of the crashes.
At the Pentagon in Washington, 184 people were killed when hijacked American Airlines Flight 77 crashed into the building.
Near Shanksville, Pennsylvania, 40 passengers and crew members aboard United Airlines Flight 93 died when the plane crashed into a field. It is believed that the hijackers crashed the plane in that location, rather than their unknown target, after the passengers and crew attempted to retake control of the flight deck.
As of July 2019, 1,644 (60%) of 2,753 WTC victims’ remains have been positively identified, according to the medical examiner’s office.
All the stories of the affected people and heros are important – here are a few:
One hero was a man named Rick Rescorla, a retired US Army officer who got a job as director of security for Morgan Stanley Dean Witter (previously Dean Witter). He’d anticipated air attacks due to the vulnerable nature of the building, and pleaded with the firm to find a new office space. Because that wasn’t an option due to lease agreements, Rescorla enforced regular drills so employees knew how to evacuate in case of an emergency.On 9/11 Rescorla was supposed to be home, but was covering for a co-worker. He is responsible for saving 2,700 people, singing inspirational songs into a megaphone while escorting people in and out of the building. Sadly, Rescorla did not make it out that day; however, his memory lives on through the Rick Rescorla Memorial and a book written by his wife, Touched By A Hero: A 9/11 Widow’s Journal of Love & Legacy.
The only female NYPD officer to lose their life in 9/11, Moira Smith was known for her intense dedication to being a police officer. According to NYPD Angels this was her second time risking her life in an extremely disastrous situation to help others. The first was during a 1991 subway crash in Union Square, which she survived and received the Police Department’s Distinguished Duty Medal for. Sadly, the second situation on 9/11 Smith did not survive, though she was seen selflessly saving others.
On 9/11 she became known as the woman with the flashlight who helped prevent mass hysteria and the blocking of exits. She saved hundreds of lives by directing people out of the South Tower and encouraging people to “Don’t look down; Keep Moving.” There is even a famous photograph of Smith heroically leading a bloodied businessman to safety, and an account written by another man she saved.
WELLES REMY CROWTHER
Another hero on 9/11 was Welles Remy Crowther, known by the people he saved as the young man with the red bandana, which he’d used to cover his nose and mouth to protect against smoke and debris. Crowther had been a volunteer firefighter as a teenager, and during 9/11 was working as an equities trader on the 104th floor of the South Tower. When the chaos ensued Crowther took charge to move groups out of the building, going back in numerous times.He saved over 15 lives, though lost his own. His memory lives on through the Welles Remy Crowther Trust, and his red banana can be seen at the 9/11 Museum.
Key points –
- be ready every day to do what you can to help and act – as F3 leaders we need to be ready for anything
2. you do not know what God has planned for you, each day is a gift from God
Do not boast about tomorrow, for you do not know what a day may bring
Pray for Junk’s wife, Garret’s family and Carol who will be having heart surgery on Monday
