the hijackers and the world, come if you must but we will stand united and we will fight back. The above information was based on facts found on the following websites as well as personal knowledge. The courageous historical figure I have chosen to write about is Jeremy Glick. Jeremy was 31 years old, husband to long time love Lyzbeth and father to a baby girl named Emerson. He was also a passenger on United Airlines Flight 93, on September 11, 2001. Out of four planes that were hijacked that day, only one did not reach the specified target.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
