Today, Congressman Rick Crawford remembered Batesville native Sara Elizabeth Low in a speech before the House of Representatives. Low was a flight attendant on American Airlines Flight 11, the plane that hit the north tower of the World Trade Center on September 11, 2001.

Since Low’s passing, the community of Batesville, Arkansas has held an annual 5k Run in her honor. Additionally, a memorial to Low now stands at the Batesville Junior High School.

Below are Crawford’s full remarks honoring Sara Low:

September 11, 2001 is a day that will forever be etched in our nation’s memory. Today, marks the eleventh anniversary of the tragic terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center, Pentagon and the crash of Flight 93 in Pennsylvania. Nearly 3,000 innocent people lost their lives that day.

For one family in my district the tragedy of September 11th hits close to home. Batesville native Sara Elizabeth Low was a flight attendant on American Airlines Flight 11, the plane that hit the north tower of the World Trade Center 11 years ago today. Sara was just 29 years old and she loved her job as a flight attendant.

The community of Batesville, Arkansas may be small in population, but today they are enormous in heart and in remembrance of the life Sara Low lived. For six years now the Batesville Community has held a 5k run to remember Sara and a memorial now stands in her honor at the Junior High School.

Today my thoughts are with Sara’s parents, Mike and Bobbie Low, and all those in Batesville who were blessed to know her. May God bless the memory of Sara Low and all those who lost their lives on September 11, 2001.
