  • What's a hero? I didn't even think about it.
    Uli Derickson (b. c. 1944), flight attendant. As quoted in People magazine, p. 111 (March 7-14, 1994). Working on TWA flight 847 from Athens to Rome, which was hijacked for seventeen days by Lebanese terrorists in 1985, she persuaded the hijackers to spare the lives of all but one person on board and maintained calm throughout the ordeal. Rejecting the "hero" label, she insisted that she was only doing her job.
