A former flight attendant has taken on the mammoth task of trekking from Boston to New York City, while pushing an airline beverage cart to honor the victims of the September 11 attacks.
According to local media, Paulie Veneto is making the over 200-mile journey to pay tribute to his colleagues, nine of whom were on board the hijacked United Flight 175 when it crashed into the World Trade Center’s South Tower.
This footage, filmed by Ian Stoker-Long, shows Veneto making his way through New Haven, Connecticut on September 5, as he is escorted by local police and fire departments with crowds of supporters cheering him on as he passes.
In the video, Veneto expresses how grateful he is for all the encouragement he received saying, “to walk down the street here with all of these police cruisers and fire trucks supporting me, how can I not feel excited and grateful? It’s unbelievable.” Credit: Ian Stoker-Long, COMPEL via Storyful
