September 11, 2001, the day that was to change the world and change America. Remembering that day, we must never forget “Let’s Roll.” Who? Todd Beamer, who said those words while he and all the victims of flight 93 tried to fight with the hijackers. “Are you ready?” Of course we have never forgotten his good will to sacrifice his life for his country.
I want to say thanks to him so much, and I want to share the pain with his family. I’m not a citizen of America, but I realize my heart gets hurt when I think about that day 9/11, even though I’m not American. Todd is a true US hero. You'll always be on our minds. May God bless you and your family forever.
Thanks to all the passengers and crew of United Flight 93.

Todd Beamer, I remember
What you did on 9-11.
You gave your very best,
My patriotic son.
You are the spirit of America,
And there are many more like you
Who would bravely do as you did
If they were ever challenged to.
“Let’s roll!” you shouted
As you charged the enemy.
We’re glad you did what you did up there
To try to save Flight 93.
“Let’s roll!” Your battle cry
Will forevermore be heard across the land
As America continues to face this terror threat
That plagues the world of man.

I can only say thank God for making the people who all came together on that day, on that plane, and in this country. I can't say I have ever felt more inspired in my life after hearing this story and reading Lisa's book. Thank you God for making Todd Beamer and bringing him to us all. I will be a better person because of him!

You are a true American hero. We will never forget the act of bravery you and the other passengers did on Flight 93. Rest in Peace. We will never forget.

Today is September 11, 2006, and all day I've been thinking about 9-11 and watching 9-11 documentaries on TBN, but until today I hadn't heard about Todd. Wow, what an awesome man. I really respect what Todd did for America, and even for his family, because he didn't die in vain. I believe God gave him the courage he needed to stop the terrorists from fulfilling their mission. Perhaps he hoped to save the plane and the passengers, but what matters is that plane was going down regardless, and he has saved so many lives! I believe that Todd saved the President's life also and any others who were in the White House if that's where the plane was headed. Thank God for using Todd, and I believe he has his reward now. God bless all who love Todd and all the other victims of 9-11.

Even though we never met before, you were a brave American. My heart is really broken to see that your life has been stolen away from you and your family. May your soul rest in peace. God bless the Beamer family.

Lisa, I lost my young husband very unexpectedly some years ago and was left with three children to raise. Then a year and a half after his death, my oldest child (a daughter) was tragically killed in a car accident. I am living proof that God sustains, heals our broken hearts (though we still have scars!), and deepens our spiritual walk with His Son so we, in turn, can comfort others. God's blessings to you and your children.

He was a good man.

Five years have passed, and I will never ever forget ... Todd Beamer. He was and is a true American hero. He wasn't military. He wasn't in any part of the law enforcement agencies. And he did the most heroic deed! He would not let terrorists inflict any more harm to our country. He and those on Flight 93 stood up against them. All that was taught to him throughout his life came forward.
His bravery, courage, and valor went above what the average American citizen is asked to do. He gave his life to protect America from further damage. He will always be in my heart. I will never forget him.
My respect and love goes out to his family forever. May God bless them.

Thank you for fighting for us. Thank you for being brave by giving your life so that others might live.

I was devastated when I saw what happened that day. I was watching a show when the news flashed across the TV. I was in shock that something like this could have happened. I followed the story for days and weeks after and read the book by Lisa for her husband and felt like I had known her for a long time. I felt her pain, and I cried through the whole book. I am so sorry for your loss, but I know that you helped to save many other lives that day. Thank you for what you did for our country.

Title: Permanent Flame
This is my (copyrighted) gift to the world.
Never forgotten … permanent flame
No longer here, but you’ll always remain
3000 gone … but never in vain
Honor their memory … take back the plane
September 11th, 2001
Started so normal, ended so wrong
American airplanes, turned into guns
Fired on our towers, that stood proud and strong
Black clouds from New York … to the Pentagon
60 years after 1941
American steel … will never yield
Look at the hole, in the Pennsylvania field
Beamer and company, saw America attacked
Our Capitol saved, because they fought back
Ordinary people … scared but so bold
Rose to the challenge … told the world, “Let’s roll”
Some blamed the US, but nothing we did
Justified the murder, of innocent kids
Since then we’ve had Bali, London, and Madrid
We try to save the world, across the global grid
2002 … Afghanistan
Liberated a nation, routed the Taliban
2003 … war in Iraq
Saddam in jail … democracy on track
September 11th, 2004
36 months, since the start of the war
Less people airborne, scared to the core
What can we do … we must do more
An ordinary man … I see in the mirror
But now I understand … the picture is clearer
Only total victory … in the war on terror
Will make America … for all our children better
Our soldiers fight … because the cause is right
So our children are safe … when tucked in at night
Donate your dollars to police … and those who firefight
Money left over … go book that flight
September 11th, 2006
Chargers vs Raiders … I got my tix
From LAX … to OAK
Don’t worry, mom and dad, I’ll be okay
I need to do this, it helps heal the pain
I’ll get home safely, so don’t be afraid
I’m only one link, in an American chain
If others join me, we can take back the plane
So call up United, Delta, and Southwest
Show all the world, our American best
Take back our freedom … Take back the sky
For our fallen heroes … American eagles, let’s fly
May God Bless the USA … again.

I was hired for a new job today. They told me the start date — September 11. A chill went down my arm. That date I guess will always bring much emotion. My thoughts and prayers are with the heroes of Flight 93. I cannot imagine losing a loved one so tragically, so unnecesarily. I watched Flight 93 tonite as I remembered, and I know how brave they were in the face of death....

I was in Sunday school when the leader told us about Todd Beamer. She told us about the book, "Let's Roll," and all about him. I was never expecting that he was going to die. Todd Beamer sounds like an awesome and courageous person.

I was just flipping through the pictures in "Let's Roll," Lisa's book, and it suddenly dawned on me that I am so grateful to Todd and to all of the heroes on Flight 93 that day. We have so much to be thankful for, and we should never forget the role that they played. My family and I have prospered in this great country in part due to their sacrifice. Just imagine if that plane had hit its target....

I can honestly say that I have not cried in years. Last night, I read Mrs. Beamer's book (the entire book — I could not set it down) and cried for nearly half an hour. God bless you, Mr. Beamer. You are a true American hero.

I write here from Dublin, Ireland.
Its great to know that this man was there to prevent other lives from being lost. He is a hero. Go on America, you are a great country.

Well, your family inspired me so much. I am a believer, too. It is such a joy to read the book. It would be hard to go through what you are going through, but the Lord is there for you always.
I am 14 years old, and at school my teacher wants everyone to write a three-page essay on their hero. Some people chose Terry Fox or their grandparent, but I wanted to do it on Todd because his story is so amazing and encouraging.
Anyway, thanks so much for your story and encouragement.
