Mark Bingham Documentary


I have posted here in the past that a personal hero in my life is a man named Mark Bingham who was one of the passengers on United Flight 93 and was one of the people believed to have stormed the hijackers on the plane that day.

In the past year Emmy award winning director and producer Scott Gracheff has been working closely with Mark's family and friends to bring his story to the big screen in a documentary about his life. I had the honor to be interviewed by Scott on camera and I actually am in the film's preview which could be seen on line. (I'm the guy in the blue baseball cap at the rugby game).

I can't tell you how much this means to me to be part of this film. Even though he gave his life on September 11, 2001 stopping the hijackers on Flight 93, Mark managed to change my life for the better long after he was gone. Mark's mother Alice and his friends Joe and Todd really played key roles in helping me and I'll always be thankful for that.

I explain it better in the film and you could see that in the trailer so check it out here and find out who this man was and why he's loved by so many people:
