Overview

Vaya entre bastidores con el heroe del vuelo 93 de United, Todd Beamer y su esposa Lisa, quienes estaban preparados para hacer el supremo sacrificio... Despues del 11 de septiembre, un veterano de Vietnam le envio a Lisa Beamer la condecoracion Corazon Purpura que gano en batalla. Un veterano de la Segunda Guerra Mundial hizo lo mismo. El Congreso de Estados Unidos le dio una prolongada ovacion puestos de pie. La invitaron a programas de television tales como Good Morning America, Dateline y 20/20, asi como figuro en el New York Post y Newsweek. Y Todd Beamer? Segun un editorial en el Dallas Morning News, es uno de los tres individuos mas admirados en Estados Unidos hoy. Por que todo este interes en una tranquila pareja de Nueva Jersey? Todd y Lisa Beamer se convirtieron en simbolos de la nacion y de fuerza personal frente a la crisis. Todd por sus heroicas acciones que le costaron la vida y Lisa por su amable y valerosa respuesta. Aunque muchos han escuchado algunas cosas y partes de la vida de los Beamer, su historia corre mucho mas profundo que una simple frase: Vamos a rodar! Un heroe entre nosotros es su historia, un mensaje de entereza, valor y fe frente a la aterradora tragedia. Sin embargo, es tambien su historia... una que le dara una incomparable esperanza para su futuro en el turbulento mundo actual. Y el fortalecimiento para disfrutar la vida real... ahora mismo.

Editorial Reviews

Criticas
One year after the tragic events of September 11, Beamer remembers the life of her husband, Todd, who became an American hero by preventing the terrorist hijackers from flying United Airlines Flight 93 into their intended target. In this very personal account, Beamer, with the help of biographer Abraham, describes how Todd led a group of passengers in resisting the hijackers, forcing the plane to crash into a Pennsylvania field. Throughout most of the book, Beamer pays tribute to her husband's courage by describing his childhood, his college years, and their marriage. Her writing also reflects her passage from grief and questioning her religious faith to accepting her husband's death and learning to live without hatred. Not following a chronological order, the chapters blend anecdotes about Todd's life with Beamer's descriptions of the days following the attacks, keeping readers focused on Todd's story and not just the tragedy. This inspiring tale of hope and recovery will appeal to those interested in the lives of the September 11 heroes as well as in the role Christian faith plays in moments of crisis. Recommended for public libraries and bookstores.
