  1st Session
H. CON. RES. 232



                            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 
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. Folger, 
        Colleen Fraser, Andrew Garcia, Jeremy Glick, Kristin Gould, 
        Lauren Grandcolas, Donald Greene, Linda Gronlund, Richard 
        Guadagno, Toshiya Kuge, Hilda Marcin, Waleska Martinez, Nicole 
        Miller, Louis J. 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.
