Let's Roll

Sep 11, 2011

The events of today remind me of one of the greatest books I have ever read.
"Let's Roll" by Lisa Beamer

Lisa was the wife of Todd Beamer, one of the men who helped prevent United Airlines Flight 93 from doing more damage to our country on September 11, 2001.
In the book Lisa details how her husband made a quick call from the plane to a GTE supervisor telling them of their plan to take down the terrorists and the aircraft.
He said the Lord's Prayer with the operators and then his final words of that conversation was "Are you guys ready? Let's Roll" which was something he often said to his boys when they were leaving their home.
The book tells all about the life of Todd and their strong faith in God that helped their family through this tough time.

I would love to be able to re-read it today, but instead I'm stuck reading this lovely piece of garbage.
