"One of the lessons of 9/11 is that evil is real, and so is courage?" ?former President George W Bush

Much has rightfully been said and posted in memoriam of the victims of 9/11 at the World Trade Center and the Pentagon.

However, we don't wish to ever forget the brave and unselfish sacrifice of the passengers of Flight 93, as the small group of ordinary heroes quickly crafted a plan and overpowered the terrorists who had hijacked the plane, causing the death of all of those on board; but saving the lives of so many as the terrorist mission to fly the plane into the Capitol was stopped.

On Saturday, former President George W Bush spoke at the dedication of the Flight 93 Memorial in Shanksville, PA. Below are a few excerpts from that speech, follow the source link to watch a video and read a full transcript of it, by AllAmericanBlogger.com.

GW Bush speaks at Flight 93 memorial"With their selfless act, the men and women who stormed the cockpit lived out the words, 'Greater love hath no man than this that a man lay down his life for his friends.' And with their brave decision, they launched the first counter offensive of the war on terror. The most likely target of the hijacked plane was the United States Capitol. We'll never know how many innocent people might have been lost, but we do know this, Americans are alive today because the passengers and crew of Flight 93 chose to act, and our nation will be forever grateful.

"The 40 souls who perished on the plane left a great deal behind. They left spouses and children and grandchildren who miss them dearly. They left successful businesses and promising careers and a lifetime of dreams they will never have the chance to fulfill. They left something else?a legacy of bravery and selflessness that will always inspire America.

"For generations people will study the flight, the story of Flight 93. They will learn that individual choices make a difference, that love and sacrifice can triumph over evil and hate, and that what happened above this Pennsylvania field ranks among the most courageous acts in American history?" -former President George W Bush
