Flight 93

A moving article on the new movie, Flight 93, by the father of Todd Beamer, who was one of the courageous passengers that fought with the terrorists. It is encouraging that he thinks the film makers got it right in their portrayal of that infamous flight and struggle that brought down the plane in a Pennsylvania field on Sept 11, 2001. He also pegs the enemy right on. The enemy is not a country or a people or a religion or even a specific terrorist group, but radical fundamentalist Islam that wants nothing less than to change the world - your world and mine.

"There are those who would hope to escape the pain of war. Can't we just live and let live and pretend every thing is OK? Let's discuss, negotiate, reason together. The film accurately shows an enemy who will stop at nothing in a quest for control. This enemy does not seek our resources, our land or our materials, but rather to alter our very way of life."
