Our 33

Our 33
Our 33

Our 33 went to work on an early Tuesday morning thinking our nation was protecting their work place.

Our 33 suddenly landed in a space without limits and boundaries – a place hard for us to comprehend.

Our 33 left behind their bodies to fly freely while watching us as we continue on our journey.

Our 33 were the ones lumped together with all the other fatalities on that fateful morning.

Our 33 were described as “PLUS CREW” in most of the stories written later that day.

Our 33 made us proud of our profession by their example, showing courage in the face of this very well planned attack.

Our 33 were 8 pilots – 4 American and 4 United—plus 25 flight attendants – 13 American and 12 United .

Our 33 should know we still speak their names; we know they were there and what they did, and we think of them often!

I do want the reader to know I will continue writing because not only were our crews not acknowledged the way they should have been on 911 but we that were left behind have paid dearly since then too. Especially our airline industry and it's many employees.

Thank You for taking the time to comment. It is fuel for my focus on a topic that is difficult to write about but needs to be said. Thanks again Jeanie

Thank you for putting into words that express how we feel about what happened and that we as flight attendants were not acknowledged for being the eyes and ears of what was really going on up there. We will never forget and keep on writing, we appreciate it.

Dianne, your words come at a time when the focus of the 911 events will start to slide, but there is so much more to say about what happened to us and I will continue until I feel our voice has been heard. Thank You for your comment. Barbara aka GG baba
