September 11, 2001 – United Airlines flight #93

Todd Beamer tried to place a credit card call through a phone located on the back of a plane seat but was routed to a GTE customer-service supervisor, Lisa Jefferson. Beamer reported that one passenger was killed and that the pilot and co-pilot had been forced from the cockpit and may have been wounded. He was still on the phone with Ms. Jefferson when the plane made its turn in a southeasterly direction, a move that had him briefly panicking. A short while later, he told Ms. Jefferson that some of the plane’s passengers were planning to jump on the hijackers and fly the plane into the ground before the hijackers’ plan could be followed through.

Beamer recited The Lord’s Prayer with Ms. Jefferson and his last audible words were:

“Are you guys ready? Okay … let’s roll.”

To honor the memory of those brave patriots, these ‘ordinary’ citizens like us doing the extraordinary on that fateful day, I can think of no better way than for each of us to make a commitment—today—that we are not just going to pull the lever for Romney-Ryan in the privacy of the voting booths—but that as we do we’re going to say out loud, “Let’s Roll.”

    Couldn’t have been more appropriate for this day. Too bad Obama was watching Russian navy flicks and apologizing to the next generation of attackers.
