Lest we Forget

17 Years ago, a paradigm changed. Hijacking ceased to be something you could expect to survive so long as you stayed calm, followed orders, and got down on the ground as soon as SWAT/HRT/SAS/whoever stormed the plane, and became something where you HAD to assume you were going to die. Let us mourn the dead, but let us also celebrate the heroism of Flight 93, who upon hearing about the earlier hijackings, acted decisively and with courage.
