[Congressional Bills 107th Congress] [From the U.S. Government Printing Office] [H. Con. Res. 232 Referred in Senate (RFS)] 1st Session H. CON. RES. 232 _______________________________________________________________________ IN THE SENATE OF THE UNITED STATES December 6, 2001 Received and referred to the Committee on Rules and Administration _______________________________________________________________________ CONCURRENT RESOLUTION Expressing the sense of the Congress in honoring the crew and passengers of United Airlines Flight 93. Whereas on September 11, 2001, acts of war were committed against the United States, killing and injuring thousands of innocent people; Whereas these attacks were directed at the World Trade Center in New York, New York, and the Pentagon in Washington, D.C., which are symbols of the Nation's economic and military strength; Whereas United Airlines Flight 93 was hijacked by terrorists as part of these attacks; Whereas while Flight 93 was still in the air, passengers and crew, through cellular phone conversations with loved ones on the ground, learned that other hijacked airplanes had been used in these attacks; Whereas during these phone conversations several of the passengers indicated that there was an agreement among the passengers and crew to try to overpower the hijackers who had taken over the aircraft; Whereas it is believed that it was this effort to overpower the hijackers that caused Flight 93 to crash in southwestern Pennsylvania, short of what is believed to have been its intended target: Washington, D.C.; and Whereas the crash resulted in the death of everyone on board the aircraft: Now, therefore, be it Resolved by the House of Representatives (the Senate concurring), That it is the sense of the Congress that-- (1) on September 11, 2001, the passengers and crew of hijacked United Airlines Flight 93 possibly averted the use of that aircraft in a further terrorist attack on the United States by attempting to overpower the hijackers; (2) the United States owes its deepest gratitude to the passengers and crew of Flight 93, and extends its condolences to the families and friends of Captain Jason Dahl, First Officer Leroy Homer, flight attendants Lorraine G. Bay, Sandra W. Bradshaw, Wanda A. Green, Ceecee Lyles, Deborah A. Welsh, and passengers Christian Adams, Todd Beamer, Alan Beaven, Mark Bingham, Thomas Burnett, William Cashman, Georgine Corrigan, Joseph Deluca, Patrick Driscoll, Edward Felt, Jane C.

Nacke, Donald Peterson, Mark Rothenberg, John Talignani, Honor Elizabeth Wainio, and 9 passengers whose families wish them to remain anonymous; and (3) a memorial plaque to these victims should be placed on the grounds of the Capitol, and a copy of the wording of the plaque, together with a copy of this resolution from the Congressional Record, should be sent to a designated survivor of each victim. Passed the House of Representatives December 5, 2001. Attest: JEFF TRANDAHL, Clerk.
