The kindness of the people in Gander will not be forgotten. They should be very proud, as I believe is the rest of Canada also. Part of the inscription reads: "in gratitude for the profound humanitarian role the airport and people of Gander played in the wake of the attacks on 9/11."

"The people of Gander ... stepped up and performed their own acts of courage and heroism on 9/11 and soon thereafter for the thousands of people who descended upon them or were stranded with no advance notice whatsoever," said Catherine Christman, a spokeswoman for the foundation and cousin of Stephen Siller.

Nearly 7,000 passengers were stranded for three days in Gander when all flights were grounded, and the people of Gander provided food, lodging and other assistance.
