TV Host Mike Rowe Memorializes Hero of 9/11: "This Guy Epitomized Bravery and Sacrifice"

Will Maule : Sep 11, 2018 : Faithwire.com

"Tom Burnett's last act on earth was one of the most courageous things imaginable. And his last words to his wife, Deena, are among the most inspiring I've ever heard." -Mike Rowe

[Faithwire.com] Everybody's favorite television host, Mike Rowe, has become well-known for his measured response to the biggest scandal of the day. He is careful to hold his tongue, but when he comes out with a few words on the matter, it is invariably wise and fair. Rowe took to Facebook Monday after being asked about his views on the Nike advertisement controversy—his words were exceptional. (Photo: Mike Rowe-Facebook/via Faithwire)

"Nike's free to celebrate whomever they wish, and Kaepernick is entitled to his opinion—kneeling, standing, or lying down," Rowe qualified at the beginning of his post. "But if I was going to put someone's face on a billboard—someone who epitomized bravery and sacrifice—I might have gone another way, especially this time of year. I might have gone with this guy—Tom Burnett."

Tom Burnett was one of the heroic passengers onboard the infamous Flight 93 some 17 years ago.

Their bravery and heroism likely saved countless lives, and will never, ever be forgotten. (Photo: Tom Burnett/historycommons.org)

"Tom's last act on earth was one of the most courageous things imaginable. And his last words to his wife, Deena, are among the most inspiring I've ever heard," Rowe continued. "Those exact words are at the top of this page, and the bottom. They were spoken seventeen years ago, under conditions I hope to never experience. I'll never forget Tom's last words. I hope you won't either"... Subscribe for free to Breaking Christian News here.
