Beverly Eckert was one of the 50 people killed in Thursday's Buffalo plane crash. Her husband died in the September 11th attacks. Since that day she had spent her time fighting to make the country safer.
President Obama spoke about the Eckert tragedy today, saying "She was an inspiration to me and to so many others. I pray that her family finds peace and comfort in the hard days ahead." Hillary Clinton said "Beverly had become a friend to me and [she'll be remembered for her] tireless advocacy for the families and victims of 9/11" in a statement today.
