I have seen Lisa on TV interviews and admire her. I know she will survive and thrive because she has it all pulled together with strong support of wonderfully close family and outstanding church friends. True friends in faith are the best kind! The book is 312 pages and at the end she scripts the names of all those who were on Flight 93. Romans 11:33-36 is one of her spiritual sources; she has memorized much scripture being a lifelong believer.
|Back cover of book|
More than 45 widows of the September 11 attack had given birth by the time Morgan Beamer, their daughter was born. This is striking to me because you know I was born to a young widow and never knew my father. But I know that Lisa and her children will be more than OK in life. She is balancing sadness with hope. She has established the Todd Beamer Foundation http://www.beamerfoundation.org/ which has as its purpose "seeks to equip children experiencing family trauma to make heroic choices every day.
This is an excellent book for Christian women to read. I picked it up at Book Sale and will share it with others now. I have kept special prayers for all the surviving families of 9/11 victims. Don't even get me started about the mosque proposed to be built there.
