Flight 93

“I can’t remember when I actually learned of that fourth plane. Certainly didn’t assume, necessarily, that it was headed toward the Capitol, but all indications are that it was. So it was–there was a numbness, an unawareness, which gradually gave way to a sense, an apprehension, a personal relief. I mean, from that point on, every day I sat in my office for the next three years, there wasn’t a day that went by that I didn’t think of those people in the plane that had been taken down in Pennsylvania who were true heroes, and certainly saved a lot of lives in the Capitol itself.”
