I remember that morning so vividly. I too became overwhelmed with the love family and friends showed by calling and emailing their concern for your safety prior to knowing what airlines were involved in the tragedy . I ALSO remember how much closer the SWA family became--reaching out to each other in the company AND to others in the industry.
We went for a walk later that day and saw American flags flying throughout our neighborhood, and businesses! It was awesome! I wish ten years later everyone was flying their American flags with the same determination and deliberateness. Perhaps ten years later all of the commemoration ceremonies and the memorials taking place will rejuvenate Americans and unite everyone with the resolve to stand together as we did on September 11, 2001--especially as all of us endure tough economic times. We are a great country--we will get through this!
I know every time you go to work has changed for you and others who fly for a living--in order for the public and crew to be safe. Thank you for all that you do for SWA and the public at large. You are a great pilot, but more important, you are a caring man.
Never Forget! God Bless America!
