It seemed like a forced effort to make a story out of one short but famous incident.
Understanding unconditional love Jan 3, 2007
I have visited the crash site twice, once on 9/11/06. In her book, I was emotionally sent back in time to the very essence of what was taking place both in the air and on the land. Two Lisa's lives were changed forever that morning. The Christian faith that Lisa Jefferson gave to Todd, was a message to me, that in tragic events we can reach out to one another. Lisa's life has been changed, and so has our country's. She has made the term "How may I help you" have meaning, so we will never forget that help may be a phone call or a helping hand away. Praise the Lord for the Lisa Jefferson's in our world.

This is a must read for everyone, written for everyone. A very easy read. I was amazed and moved to tears by the detailed account of Todd's call taken by Lisa on 9/11/01. I am forever inspired not only by the heroes of Flight 93 but also by the courage of Lisa Jefferson who unselfishly shares her heart and soul in this book.
