Most of us remember the moment we first became aware the nation was under attack.
Rescue workers at a Pentagon day care center worked frantically, trying to evacuate infants quickly, wondering how soon the next plane would hit. They cheered as two American fighter jets flew low overhead.
They had no idea that one of those planes was piloted by a young woman who had prepared for what looked like a suicide mission.
If that fact had been reported then, would anyone have laughed at the idea of a woman pilot?
