is the final resting place of the 40 passengers and crew members of Flight 93 who stopped the worst terrorist attack in U.S. History on September 11, 2001. The individual courage and bravery of these ordinary people saved thousands of lives when they fought back against terrorist efforts to hijack and fly their plane into the
U.S. Capitol Building, home to the United States Congress.
Inspired by the approaching 20th anniversary of the 9/11 terror attacks, and in memory of the heroism displayed by the 40 passengers and crew members of Flight 93 in the skies over Pennsylvania, the Friends of Flight 93 National Memorial is proud to present the First Annual Flight 93 Heroes Award. The national award will be presented each year to individuals who have demonstrated remarkable acts of selfless courage in their community, anywhere in the United States. This year's national recipient is Sivad Johnson. On Aug. 21, 2020, Johnson jumped into a river when he heard three girls screaming for help. The Detroit off-duty firefighter was helping the girls when authorities believe he got caught in a rip current and died. The girls were all saved.
September 11, 2001 began as an ordinary, late-summer day. But, in less than two hours' time, this seemingly routine day was transformed when nineteen terrorists boarded and hijacked four airplanes to attack America.Read the story
