    Seventeen years ago on 9/11, first responders went into and up the collapsing buildings saving countless lives. Civilians took back control of American Airlines Flight 93 preventing the hijackers from hitting their desired target. These heroes made the ultimate sacrifice; the greatest act of love.
    Prayer requests.
