Trip of Heroism

Thursday, May 18, 2017

Join us on our visit to two sites of heroism.  The first had an unbelievable outcome.  The second honors the sacrifice of the brave men and women who saved our Capitol from destruction.

On July 24, 2002, nine coal miners were trapped
240 feet deep in the earth. Trapped in frigid
darkness for 77 hours, the men miraculously came
to the surface in a rescue capsule that can be
viewed at the sight. One of the “tellers of the
story” is Bill Arnold, who will also provide insight
into the caring and courage of the rescuers who
formed an amazing team of people that saved nine brave men.

On Tuesday morning, September 11, 2001, the U.S. came under attack when four commercial airliners were hijacked and used to strike targets on the ground. Nearly 3,000 people tragically lost their lives. Because of the actions of the 40 passengers and crew aboard one of the planes, Flight 93, the attack on the U.S. Capitol was thwarted.
