Hero Park

As we all know, September 11, 2001 was a tragic day that will forever remain prominent in our minds. One of the planes taken over by terrorists was United Flight 93.

United Flight 93 crashed in Pennsylvania, in a rural section of the state, unlike the densely populated areas it was surely scheduled to annihilate.

From the phone calls made by passengers aboard Flight 93, it was determined that they knew about the World Trade Centers and they knew the fate they had in store for them. One of the gentlemen on board, Tom Burnett told his wife, "I know we're going to die. Some of us are going to do something about it".

Nobody alive today can say for certain what happened next. But all evidence points to four brave passengers rushing the cockpit and forcing the plane down, not in heavily populated Washington as was the plan, but rather in the scarcely populated fields of Pennsylvania.

Everybody on board died and thousands of lives were saved.

Hero Park

On September 29, 2001, the City of Euclid re-dedicated the East 228th Street Playground and Ball field and renamed the area "HERO PARK". The dedication read:

"Dedicated by the people of Euclid in grateful memory of Todd Beamer, Mark Bingham, Tom Burnett and Jeremy Glick, who bravely sacrificed their lives aboard hijacked United Flight 93, which crashed in Pennsylvania, to save the lives of their fellow citizens on the tragic morning of 11 September 2001."
