Called tells the gripping account of 9/11 from her vantage point. She recalls the moment she when took the call from Todd Beamer on United Airlines Flight 93, and when she heard the immortal words, "Let's Roll."

^God scheduled my role."

September 11, 2001. On what seemed like a normal Tuesday ^morning, Lisa Jefferson left for work-unaware of the challenge God had prepared ^for her. Just a couple of hours later, she took the most important call of her life.

Lisa ^was the Verizon supervisor who spoke with Todd Beamer during the final minutes of ^United Airlines Flight 93. She prayed with Todd, then listened as he and the other ^heroes on that flight stood up to the terrorists controlling their airplane.

This ^ordinary woman was changed by the extraordinary events of that day. She writes, ^"We can live out our days trying to make sense of the senseless, or we can trust ^God." Her story will inspire your faith that God can use even the most tragic experiences-and ^that He has a purpose for your life.

LISA D. JEFFERSON is an inspirational speaker, wife, and mother ^of two. She has received numerous awards and is currently involved in fundraising ^efforts for the Flight 93 National Memorial Project. It was on the morning of the ^9/11 attacks on the US, that Lisa, a 17-year Verizon Supervisor and Chicago native, ^handled the emergency phone call that came in from Todd Beamer, one of the passengers ^who helped divert hijacked Flight 93. Called is her first book. She lives ^in the Chicago area with her husband, and two children.

FELICIA MIDDLEBROOKS ^(B.A., Purdue University) is one of the top media personalities in Chicago, anchoring ^the award-winning Morning Drive program on CBS Radio/WBBM Newsradio 780. ^She is the first woman and first African American to co-anchor Morning Drive. She ^is co-author of Called: "Hello, My Name is Mrs. Jefferson, I Understand Your ^Plane is Being Hijacked?" She also contributed to Our Voices. Felicia ^lives in Chicago, Illinois.

The 9-1-1 operator who took the call from Todd Beamer on United Airlines ^Flight #93 tells her unique story of being "called" on that fateful day. An ^ordinary man with an extraordinary faith led the charge that saved countless lives ^on September 11, 2001. See how faith and courage led to swift, selfless action (in ^the air and on the ground) on the day that changed America forever.
