Beverly Eckert was a Widow, and died in the Plane crash, her Husband died in the 911 attack She also met with the President a few days ago. I feel really bad for the whole situation. I had got up about 3:30am, I could'nt sleep. and I seen it on the T.V. My heart goes out to all the Families of the Plane Crash. It is scarey I don't know if I want to get on a Plane for now. I was Planning on going to Ca. but I don't think so, not right now. 50 people were killed in the Plane crash. May the R.I.P~~~~~~~~~~~

I saw a news article title about 50 dying in a plane crash, but that is about all the details that I gathered. In deed a very sad situation.

Yes I know how you feel, I am a little put off of plane travel since 911, but I have always been a nervous traveller anyway especially on planes, it just doesn't seem logical to me that things of such a big size can stay up there anyway without the things that terrorists do...

It is a bit scarey getting to take that first step onto a plane after an incident like this, but I was the same when I took my first long-haul flight of 91/2 hours duration from London-Vancouver, on route to Portland, Oregon. It was not too long after all the tightening up which was brought about by 9/11 and other extreme terrorist acts. I was petrified but I had made myself purchase my ticket and so had to go. I was flying alone, and the guy in the seat next to me decided to go watch the movie, so I put my radio earphones in and tried to sleep... no way... every time I drifted off, we hit some turbulence which woke me up. For nine-and-a-half hours, I was on tenderhooks, but we made it through. I think if something's going to happen to end our lives, it will happen no matter what we're doing at the time, and you shouldn't put off what you're going to do in life because some disaster has occurred, unless you've had some divine warning or something. My heart goes out to all those families whose loved ones were involved in the crash too, together with my prayers and energies... so sad! Brightest Blessings my dear friend.

It is such a scary thought and I hate it when planes crash, seems to go through stages where there are none for ages and then there a couple very close together. It is so sad that it happened and it always makes me not want to fly, I am supposed to be going on a plane in september but I really do not want too!
