This genetic one of a kind Rose has been named to
forever Honor and Remember the 9/11 Heroes of United
Airlines Flight 93.
On September 11, 2001, forty brave men and women fought
back against their terrorist hijackers. They realized
that their plane was going to be used as a flying bomb.
They decided to do what they could to save the lives of
others on the ground. With their decision to fight back,
they gave their lives to save others, thus making the
ultimate sacrifice, and becoming Heroes.
In order to help honor and remember the forty Heroes of
Flight 93, and to also collect donations to help build
the Flight 93 National Memorial, we decided to get a
genetic one-of-kind hybrid tea rose donated and named
for the Heroes.
Michael L. Emerson, a member of the Flight 93 National
Campaign Steering Committee, contacted rose breeders all
over the United States. Finally after many months of
searching, Michael found Ben Williams, of J. B. Williams
& Associates located in Silver Spring, Maryland. Ben was
honored to be able to hybridize this rose for the Heroes
of Flight 93.
Once the Rose had been hybridized, the three nurseries
listed below joined our cause to propagate and grow
thousands of the Flight 93 Rose bushes.
For each Rose bush sold, $5.00
will be donated, directly from the nurseries to
help build the Flight 93 National Memorial in
Shanksville, Pennsylvania. The price of the Flight 93
Rose bush you buy from any of the three nurseries
already includes the $5.00 donation.
Michael L. Emerson is the administrator for the Roses.
It is our hope and wish that every home owner, rose
garden, rose society, gardener, business, landscaper,
community park and gardens, etc... will all purchase a
few of these Rose bushes, to remember and honor the
Heroes of Flight 93 and to help us to build the Flight
93 National Memorial.
This is a genetic one of a kind rose.
