Letter to a Pennsylvania Field


I honestly don’t understand how this afterlife stuff works, but I can only hope these words somehow reach heaven or wherever you guys are these days. Thank you for your sacrifice on September 11th 2001, your actions probably saved thousands of lives. People conceive of heroes as these mythical figures like Superman or Batman. Or they turn celebrities into false idols. But in those fateful moments, you showed America…the qualities of true heroes. Heroism has nothing to do with brute strength or how much money a person has. The true hero does the right thing when the right thing isn’t the easiest thing to do. America is forever in your debt, a debt we will never truly be able to repay.
