Early one morning in 2001, I sat in my California office at Oracle Corporation exchanging messages with my colleagues in the UK. Our disbelief mounted as the ghastly events of 9/11 unfolded in real time.
Meanwhile, Todd Beamer, another Oracle employee, huddled with a few brave passengers and crew in the back of the cabin of Flight 93 hatching a plan to storm the terrorists in the cockpit.
Todd kicked off the mission with the immortal words, “Let’s roll.”
You’ll find a short video of the Todd Beamer story here.
I never had the honor of meeting Todd, but he will forever be one of my personal heroes. A symbol of selfless, calm action under intense pressure.
RIP Todd. Your memory and your message rolls on.
