Beverly Eckert was among those lost in the tragic crash Thursday night of Continental airlines commuter flight 3407. Eckert was a 9.11 widow, who pressed lawmakers to adopt tangible reforms in the security of our nation. You may have never seen Eckert, but it is possible you heard her husband's voice.
He was one of several who were famously on the phone with their spouse from the World Trade Center on 9.11 who were suddenly silenced as the towers fell.
Ironically Eckert was in route to pay tribute to her fallen husband
in what was slated to be the observation of his 58th birthday.
