BATESVILLE, AR -- The father of Sara Low, a flight attendant from Batesville, killed on September 11, 2001, speaks out about his testimony in the Zacarias Moussaoui trial.


Deliberations in the case are continuing on whether to sentence Moussaoui to death or life in prison.


“Flight 11 was the first flight.  It was a flight out of Boston to Los Angeles.  Flight 11 was the first flight to strike the north tower,” said Mike Low.


Now, the fate of Zacharias Moussaoui, one of the men responsible for the September 11th terror attacks, is in the hands of a jury.


Mike Low testified in that trial.


“My testimony was about 20 minutes long.  I was just on the edge of anger and emotion,” said Low.


Low felt it was important to testify in the case in honor of his daughter.


“Sitting and testifying as they displayed photos of my Sara Elizabeth… I was thinking about Moussaoi meeting with Bin Laden and his sworn mission to murder all Americans,” said Low.


A jury has convicted Moussaoui for his part in the attacks.


“Moussaoui is an Al-Qaida.  Al-Quaida has sworn to kill all Americans.  Al-Quaida murdered my daughter Sara, and he is a part of that conspiracy,” said Low.


For Low and all the families who lost loved ones on 9/11, there's only one outcome they want from the Moussaoui trial.


“I hope the outcome is the death penalty.  That’s the reason why I testified in the penalty phase,” said Low.


But, even when the outcome is known, nothing in the lives of American's will really be the same.


“In a profound sense, our lives that most people know ended on 9/11.
