David Beamer: Will you join me as ‘One of a Million’ for the 40 of Flight 93?

One of a Million for the 40 of Flight 93

July 16, 2008

My Fellow American,

Once upon a time it was September 11, 2001, and our homeland came under attack. On that fateful Tuesday morning 40 free people, the passengers and crew aboard United Flight 93, seized the opportunity to launch a counterattack against our enemy. Though each of the 40 — including our son Todd — was killed in action, together they succeeded in preventing the additional loss of life on the ground and, most likely, further disaster in our nation’s Capital. This day, this event, this true story of courage in action needs to be remembered and told to future generations of Americans and free people from everywhere.

Excellent plans have been created for a permanent memorial near Shanksville, Pennsylvania. The memorial will commemorate the battleground and the burial ground of those who fought back. I am contacting you to ask that you join the many people who have worked, sacrificed, and supported this project. Beyond your personal support, I ask that you contact your entire network of friends, family and associates to seek their support as well. Let us unite a million Americans and complete this memorial.

The attached images of the Flight 93 National Memorial plans and the table below provide an overview of the project, the costs of each phase and the targeted construction timeline. Implementation of each phase will not commence until funds are on hand.

I am convinced that if 40 free people can plan and successfully execute a victorious counter-attack in less than an hour, then a great host of their fellow Americans can surely rally to construct a lasting memorial in less than ten years.

My exhortation to you, and everyone you know, is to make a little sacrifice in support of this project. The 40 of Flight 93 made a one-time big sacrifice. If a million free people would make a little sacrifice, this befitting memorial would become a reality. Gifts are tax-deductible and details about how to contribute are attached.

Will you join me as “One of a Million for the 40 of Flight 93” in personal support of this project? Will you encourage your entire network to do likewise? I truly hope you will.

Sincerely,

David L. Beamer

    On 9/11/08 I watched David Beamer interviewed on a morning Fox News program.
    I got all fired up about the slow memorial in Pennsylvania. I have spoken to my employer to see if we can get involved in donating to the cause. I will be giving the corperation this info from the website. Hopefully, we can speed things up a bit.

    I have a couple suggestions: Are there scholarship programs for the kids of the people who gave their lives for this country on this day?

    I had some very good ideas for a statue on the site of the plane crash in Shanksville, PA
    Would you be interested in seeing a glorious eagle, the exact length and size of the plane, with a wing span the exact size of the plane’s wing span: rising out of the ground, soaring into the Heavens, wrapped in an American Flag, with the 40 Heroes tucked into the protection of his feathers. I get goose bumps thinking about it. The design for the memorial is wonderful, but a bit drab. These people need to be risen up for their bravery, and devotion to us, America, and their loved ones. I want to look UP to the sky to see a monument, in memorial! What better way than a symbol of what we fight for, the American Eagle! Thank you for your time, Heather Walsh, Birch Run, MI

    Dear David,
    I have already made a donation for the memorial to Flight 93, and I hope to gain some information about the school programs available so that our children can learn about the heroism on that day and be inspired to act courageously even in the face of the worst fears and horrors.
    The events of that day are still raw in my soul..and I didn’t lose anyone close to me. I am so proud of the people on Flight 93 and how they took action to prevent the tragic day from being even worse. They were a beacon of pride on one of the darkest days in our history. We have so much to thank them for. The story of Flight 93 (and the incredible heroism of the firefighters and police who rushed into the World Trade Center) was the only thing that made detached Americans feel good about 9/11.
    Thank you for your work for this well-deserved memorial (I think there should be a traveling version or something that would allow many to view it). I am so very sorry for the loss of your son. I hope the fact that Todd will always be regarded as a hero provides some comfort to you and the rest of his family.
