Remember 9/11: Final phone message

By Jason Williams
Taxpayer Association of Oregon

In remembrance of 9/11 today, I leave behind this meme I found of the last words of 9/11 victim, Brian Sweeney, who was a passenger on United Airlines Flight 175.  This is his voice message he left for his wife and 18 month old child.  Let us remember and continue in the vigilance to fight terrorism.

Here is a text of his final message…

“Jules, this is Brian listen,
I’m on an airplane that’s been hijacked.
If things don’t go well, and it’s not looking good,
I just want you to know I absolutely love you,
I want you to do good, go have good times,
same to my parents and everybody,
and I just totally love you,
and I’ll see you when you get there.
Bye, babe. I hope I call you.”


How his wife responded can be seen in the video below.

    “continue in the vigilance to fight terrorism.” You do not seem to be a proponent for peace. We have been “fighting” terrorism for the last 17 years. Yes we started in Afghanistan in 2000 fighting terrorism. My son spent time in the middle east 7 years ago fighting terrorism. we are no closer to “winning” the fight on terrorism. The sign of insanity is doing the same thing over and over expecting a different result. Why don’t we try something like, Oh leave the middle east. bring all our troops home. we have been training them (afghans, etc) for the last 30 to 40 years and if they haven’t learned how to fight terrorist on their own then they never will. so lets quit the insanity and try something new. the united states congress has never declared war since WWII. yet we have been fighting first communism (terrorism by another name) since Korea and any number of conflicts in succession and still haven’t won. so remembrance of what happened on 9/11/2001 in the same way as the attack on Pearl Harbor so we don’t forget. Just don’t use it as an excuse to promote continuation of endless war.
