Tribute to the Passengers of Flight 93

Flight 93 was hijacked by 4 terrorists with box cutters over the Ohio skies
Initially the passengers were told to stay calm no hint they would soon die
But with cell phones some were able to contact loved ones and learn
That planes had crashed into the World Trade Center and those buildings had burned
And now Flight 93 had turned around and was heading East
Would the White House be next to receive this deadly Kamikaze beast?
To a passenger they decided they would not die like sheep
To prevent these terrorist cowards to more innocent lives reap
They attacked the cockpit door with a food cart
While the terrorists swerved the plane to from their feet depart
They may have breached the door or were very close
If inside the cockpit the terrorist knew they would be toast
Dreams of a Paradise one way trip
For destroying the White House fading away from their grip
Crashing into the countryside
All aboard died
A memorial on crash site dedicated to these Americans who to save the White House died
Ending the fanatic dreams of 4 terrorists bent on a one way Paradise ride.
