Walking with Superman: Day 52

On September 11th, 2001, four hijackers took control of United Airlines Flight 93, diverting the cross-country flight back toward the District of Colombia. Having learned about the related attacks through phone calls made during the flight, the passengers voted to rush the cockpit, revolting against the hijackers. They forced the plane to crash in a field in Stonycreek Township, Pennsylvania. Thirty-three people sacrificed their lives to save hundreds.

Today, on the anniversary of the attacks, Clark Kent is in that field in Pennsylvania, speaking with the families of those who died in the Flight 93 crash. Because even Superman has his heroes.

Thanks. This one was hard to write, so I'm glad it paid off.
