The End of Ignorance, Part 7 of 10

The world was now certain that terrible terrorist attacks had occurred in America, that shining beacon of liberty and hope. Chaos reigned in Lower Manhattan as the brave men and women of the FDNY and NYPD gave their all, and for some, their lives, to try to save as many of their kindred souls as they could. Somewhere above Pennsylvania, the knowledge made it's way to those aboard United Flight 93. By air-phone and cell phone they learned of what had happened in New York and Washington. They had already been hi-jacked and diverted. They knew what lay in store for them, but they also knew the terror that would occur if they allowed the terrorists to continue their mission. So, shortly before 10:03 AM, after what they knew would be their last conversations with those on the ground, they girded themselves and heroically did what they knew must be done. "Let's roll."
