As hard as it is to write something for Amy, I just feel empowered to. Its tough to imagine the terrifying situation she faced aboard AA 11. She did not die in vain. But Amys call to American Airlines management in which she described the bad men made her an unsung hero on 9/11.

My condolences to Amys loved ones and friends who miss her to this day.

Dear Ms. "Amy" Sweeney,

I never got to know you in person either. But I'm sure you're in heaven at God's side looking down at the world, wondering what has become of it.
I'm sure we would have gotten along well with each other if I had known you. A crime took your life about which up to this date everybody is still in a major shock. It is incomprehensible up to today although it happened already 15 years ago.

R.I.P. Ms. Sweeney you're always in the prayers.

I never got to know you. Although im sure you knew that I exist, i never really hit me till now so many years later, at how amazing you really were for what you did, when you made the call. You make me proud to be a Sweeney. ... :)

I never knew you but have heard of you.

I stumbled across your biography today when looking for something else.

It's led me to write this mote.

Rest in peace, Amy.

My condolences to her family and friends.

I was only 3 years old on September 11, 2001 - around the age of her kids. I was in preschool when it happened, and although I grew up knowing and hearing a lot about 9/11 I never really researched it, I really just viewed it as a piece of history and have always been scared to go on a plane. I'm 17 now about to be 18 in a few months and these past few weeks I have been immensely interested in 9/11 and have seen probably every 9/11 documentary and story out there. For some reason, Amy's story has stuck with me the most. I have cried so many times, not even personally knowing her or her family. My first airplane ride was a few months ago, I flew out of Tampa, FL and had a connecting flight from JFK in NY to Killarney, Ireland for an educational tour in Europe. When we left Heathrow airport in London, my friend and I went to the bathroom in the back and one of the flight attendants started talking to us. We talked about so many things and while everyone was asleep on the plane, my friend and I met most of the flight attendants and they let us hang out with them in the back of the plane. They told us their personal stories, where they're from, their favorite places, and from what I've read about Amy she was so sweet, caring, kind and probably would have connected and shared personal stories with the people she had flown with. She seemed like a fun person, I would have loved to have met her. She was SO beautiful, brave, and a true hero. She was so calm that morning on the phone I don't think I would have been as strong and content as her. I can't believe such a beautiful life was taken, may you rest in peace Amy and I hope to meet you some day. She is my hero and I'm still watching documentaries and thinking of her and her family. RIP.
