Double Tragedy

Beverly Eckert (pictured) died this morning when Continental Express Flight 3407 crashed into a Buffalo, NY neighborhood. Her husband, Sean Rooney was killed in the attack on the World Trade Center, and she was the co-chairperson of the group Voices of September 11th.

Please remember her family and friends in prayer.


  1. I heard about her on the radio this morning. It does seem very unfair and horribly sad! They said she was an activist for more investigation into 9-11. I want to look into what she was advocating.

  2. I just read in the Washington Post that Alison Des Forges, who was instrumental in drawing attention to the genocide in Rwanda and then spent much of her time documenting it, was also killed in the crash. Very tragic for the families of everyone on board.

  3. How very sad for these families but there were 43 others not in the limelight that left families behind too. Mass tragedy is so hard to understand.
