President George W. Bush will speak to Flight 93 families in Shanksville

Former President George W. Bush will be the keynote speaker at the September 11th Remembrance Ceremony in Shanksville, Pennsylvania this Saturday. Passengers of United Flight 93 fought back against the terrorists who highjacked their plane almost 20 years ago. They prevented the high jackers from using the plane to attack its intended target. Which was most likely the Capitol Building in Washington D.C. During the struggle with passengers the high jackers intentionally crashed the plane. The Boeing 757 hit the ground in Shanksville, Pennsylvania. Everyone on board was killed. The flight left Newark Airport on Tuesday September 11th 2001 headed for San Francisco. One of the passengers who struggled with the terrorists was 31 year old Jeromy Glick of West Milford.
