A 9/11 Reflection

A favorite long time flying friend sent me a copy of a picture today, 9/11/13, that had been taken in August of 2001.

3 FA’s and a friend are together on a boat in SFO harbor on a sunny but windy day. The 4 are wearing light jackets, their backs are to the wind, there are whitecaps in the water, hair is being blown around. Smiles on all 4 faces, and their arms are wrapped all around each other in a side-by-side group hug.

3 weeks later, two of the people in that photograph were no longer with us.

For Amy King & Mike Tarrou, for Amy Jarret, for all of the 33 crew from AA and UA, and to all the others of 9/11, you will never be forgotten.

This (see link below) is guaranteed to get your eyes to water, it certainly did mine. It is an article in the Hollywood Journal by a UAL FA (Felicia) about her last flight with Amy, Mike, and some of the crew on UA175. our-heroes-my-friends
