How do you forgive a terrorist for murder? Simon Kennedy's mother Yvonne was one of 10 Australians to die during the 9/11 terrorist attacks, and the only one to die outside of New York, in the attack on the Pentagon. On September 11, 2001, Yvonne boarded flight AA77 to begin her return to Australia after completing a much-planned vacation to America. All passengers on board were killed in the crash into the Pentagon.
