What I am doing on September 11

There will be lots of ways that the tragedy and shock, the valor and sacrifice of September 11 will be remembered today. In spite of all that has happened in these past 11 years, and I can assure you that the events of that day are always at the forefront of my thoughts. There is no more Flight 77 from Washington Dulles to Los Angeles. The number has been retired in honor of those who died at the Pentagon. But it is still flown, now Flight 149, and today I am the pilot. I can think of no better way to remember those who were lost in New York, D.C., Pennsylvania that fateful day, and in the wars that followed, than to get in that cockpit today and safely fly the aircraft, crew, and passengers from D.C. to L.A. And that is just what I am going to do.
