For those of you who don't know Todd Beamer is the man who called 911 from one of the planes in the 9/11 attack and informed them that their plane was being hijacked. These were the last words they heard him say to the 911 operator. He was also the man who lead the passengers in taking over the plane and saving so many lives. He and all the other people are true heroes and amazing and beautiful and will never ever be forgotten. <3

Nine years after 9/11, 900 responders are dead. I think this is so sad. Have the families been given financial support since the responders lives were jeopardized by the attack?
