I didn’t know Amy Sweeney but growing up in Acton, Mass. knew the hockey-playing Sweeney family.
Amy lived in Acton and was the Flight 11 flight attendant who calmly and bravely provided integral seat information for Mohammed Atta and the other terrorists on Flight 11. I’m proud that she’s from my hometown.
Amy’s last words to American Airlines manager Micheal Woodward: I see water. I see buildings. I see buildings! We are flying low. We are flying very, very low. We are flying way too low. Oh my God we are flying way too low. Oh my god! (American 11 crashes)

Powerful post. A lot of brave people died that day. Heroes that none of us will ever know by name. Their sacrifice will not be forgotten.
