Brian D. Sweeney, United Flight 175
As together we approach the tenth anniversary of the attack on our country, the loss of those who lives ended on 9/11/2001 is no less heartbreaking.
As a participant in the 2996 project, I was assigned the privilege of memorializing Brian D. Sweeney, a passenger on United Flight 175.
Of Viking Heart was written in tribute to a man I never met but came to know only by his passing, through the voices of his friends and family.
Today, I will think of those he left behind much too soon and their loss that never ends.
And I'll think of Brian, 38, who claimed to be part Viking and part Leonardo da Vinci.
Others remember Brian here.
We will never forget.
