United 93

United 93 was truly the first battle against Islamic Fascism. It's remarkable when you think about it. Islamic terrorists come up with the 'innovation' of transforming the hijacked airliner from a negotiating tool, to a flying bomb. Four decades in the making, and it took just a few regular Americans 90 minutes to mount a counter attack and render this new innovation obsolete.

I have not forgotten much about that day, and I certainly have not forgotten the courageous acts of those passengers or the words that Todd Beamer's family heard him speak as the passengers stormed the cockpit.

"Let's Roll"

I plan on seeing United 93 this weekend, it has gotten tremendous reviews, but the most important one to read, is doubtlessly this one, penned by Todd Beamer's father.
