I love this necklace. I can’t think of a better creed that encompasses such bravery and courage as Todd Beamer saying “Let’s roll” on that fateful flight 19 years ago. What a true hero.
On September 11th, 2001, Todd Beamer, a passenger on the hijacked United Airlines Flight 93, tried to place a call through an air phone, but was routed to a customer service representative instead, who passed him on to supervisor Lisa Jefferson. Beamer reported that one passenger had been killed and that a flight attendant had told him that both the pilot and co-pilot had been forced from the cockpit and may have been injured. He was also on the phone when the plane made a quick and violent turn. Later, he told the operator that some of the other passengers were planning to attack the hijackers and regain control of the aircraft, after they learned about what happened at the World Trade Center and The Pentagon. According to Jefferson, Beamer's last audible words were “Are you ready? Okay. Let's roll.”
We've hand stamped these words into a 5/8" disc, finished it by hand, and added an American flag 3/8" charm, all in our Wasatch Rocky Mountain studio, right here in the USA.
