Vice President Kamala Harris and former president George W. Bush praised the “courage” of passengers on United Flight 93, who attempted to wrest control of the plane from hijackers before crashing outside Shanksville, Pa.

“What happened on Flight 93 told us then and still tells us so much about the courage of those on board, who gave everything they possibly could,” Harris said at a ceremony in Shanksville. “It is my hope and prayer that we continue to honor their courage, their conviction, with our own. That we honor their unity by strengthening our common bonds.”

“The passengers and crew of Flight 93 could have been any group of citizens selected by fate. In a sense, they stood in for us all. The terrorists soon discovered that a random group of Americans is an exceptional group of people,” Bush said in a speech at the ceremony.

The passengers and crew members of United Flight 93 “stood in for us all,” former Pres. Bush says.

“Facing an impossible circumstance, they comforted their loved ones by phone, braced each other for action, and defeated the designs of evil” https://t.co/LaZCibIqoz pic.twitter.com/TtT19DiReH
