"Everyone should be proud of him--black, white, gay, straight, Bay Area, New Yorkers--because of his actions that day. We in the gay community should be particularly proud because his actions broke a lot of stereotypes."

--Paul Holm, the surviving partner of Mark Bingham. Bingham was one of the passengers on United Flight 93 who attempted to storm the cockpit and prevent the plane from hitting its intended target on September 11, 2001.
