I just read Good Housekeeping's story of Flight 3407 and Lorin. It was very touching and I am so sorry for your loss.

I think of the mirror on which your beloved daughter's sign was and is now memorialized on her head stone.She's telling her world that even though she's captured below earth's dust her spirit is alive.How? She must know Jesus Christ who says,in ME you ,too, are alive.In Me you will do more wonders than I do as I walk this earth.To that end ,you, her parents are carrying forth her spirit to find all the details that inspire U.S. legislative bodies to determine, make and enforce new governing laws over FAA,airlines, pilots,and schools.I overwhelmingly applaud you for taking your tragedy filled grief letting it strenghthen and constructively guide you to achieve these defined goals which will provide safety for every flying and dreaming of flying ,American. The image on the TV screen where you were screaming ,put out the fire.How deeply saddened I was to read of this torture.I ,too, know the excoriating pain, the excruciating agony,and the total devastating destruction of an arson fire that took both my parents' guardianship from me.How my aching heart longed for them.Would you like to know what I read (in the article)was happening for you on the TV screen?In my spirit your precious daughter was raptured before the fireball and the smoke came.Jesus, Himself with out stretched arms took her heart ,spirit,and soul before any human pain could touch her.Jesus promised as I leave you I will in like manner come for you.He clearly says, in the clouds. Not in the fire, not in the smoke.Why am I convinced of this fact? Because He showed this happening for you on TV an amazing 26 times that you watched.Sometimes the Lord knocks forever to get our attention.Many times we see naturally. On the spiritual level we see and take in a wholly different occurring picture .How do I know for certain? Paul speaks of these things in Ephesians,Thessalonians and Jesus in Matthew.Jesus called His disciples by name one by one-not collectively. Paul also writes to Timothy-one on one and then greets the church. Paul also greets Priscilla in the Lord, again one on one by name.Paul taught the rapture can occur at any time one on one.So to my thinking the Lord Himself raptured 51 souls on that plane before any known pain could touch them.How do I know this? Paul taught us that it will happen in the twinkling of an eye.Notice Paul says twinkling not a blink. A blink occurs when the eyelid covers the eyeball. It takes about 1 1/2 seconds to complete a full blink. Twinkling occurs when light strikes the rods in the back of the eye which happens quicker than a nano second, before the image is sent to the brain.There were reportedly 5 minutes before the plane crashed down.Let's ask science how fast is a nano second?Approximately 1000 times(x) quicker than one second. Mathematically this would mean approximately 4 minutes, 59 seconds,600,000tenths time remained AFTER Christ raptured them before the plane crashed.Of course this is calculated in human time . We know that God's timing is quicker than our fragile human minds can even fathom.Why do I write you these things? I want so very much for you to have comforting, love inspiring thoughts. After all the goals that you've set are achieved , your lovely daughter's valuable worth is crunched and negotiated, you lay back and rest knowing all your achievements were worth this super human effort ,like a powerful tsunami the flowering loss of her bright life will flood over you once again.And once again you might be tempted to ask God why me or wrestle, debate, or argue with Him. He has already answered these striving questions in the book of Job.He will ask you Where were you when I created Orion(sp) in the heavens? Further He will ask you where were you when I created the Heavens beyond the Heavens(David's praises in Psalms). Notice the s on the end of heavens.What does this mean? Simply put ,we have yet to begin exploration of the universes beyond our own universe. How majestically awesome is that thought.Who am I?I started out as a PK.A preacher's kid.I am a physicist M.D. Science is usually perceived as in opposition to God. I use my education to prove God , His Word, the Scriptures.I pray God fill these families hearts with Your gracious mercy. Elizabeth

My friend gave me the article quoted below.All she said was 'it's about a swimmer and aviation safety.' Such a combination brought my immediate response 'Great! It's about time the swimmers got publicity instead of the football team!! We're much prettier!!! Now that I know the content, I would like to offer this healing hope to Lorin's family , acquaintenances.At my aunt and uncle's 50th wedding anniversary my aunt said to me, 'isn't it pleasant to have Mark here'? As my awakened memory scanned the room for a ghostly figure of Mark, my aunt directed me to a cherished memorial picture of my cousin Mark who died at the stellar age of 20.Remembering all her agony,intensely shed tears I softly asked my aunt 'how do you feel about this?'Tenderly she touched a crystalized tear at the corner of her eye smiled and whispered,'see that young man over there. Doesn't he look just like Mark?' My gaze left her gently smiling face and traveled to the handsome young man. God in His Mercy had given them a very similar looking sports star 15 year old grandson.I never knew your Lorin but as a swimmer ,too, I know she left her " mark, set, go" on the world around her!I'll be writing my Senators for as we say here-- "Swimmers go the distance". May Jesus commend your Lorin to GOD. Sheila Stewart Atlanta Georgia

Dear Family,Relatives,Friends of Lorin Maurer.
The engrossing Good Housekeeping article Oct.2010 covering your sterling successes to win passage of legislation for aviation safety are sincerely welcomed by all flyers.When her mother knew that 26 seconds was equal to two laps of the regulation pool my heart cried out for the loss of such a toned, elegant swimmer.My sincere condolences and heartfelt sympathies pondering a life well-lived are extended.May God Bless you and abundantly meet your needs.Joanne , Atlanta, Georgia

It's hard to believe that it has been 1 1/2 years since you were taken away for all who loved you. I try to be thankful for a beautiful day and to be alive. Somedays it is challenging because I will never see your smiling face, hear your voice or be able to give you a hug and watch you continue to enjoy life as you did for 30 years. I cherish every moment that we spent together and smile and cry when I think of all our wonderful memories. I miss you so much and I want you to know that yesterday, today and everyday I will always love you!

Another day is passing without seeing you. Tomorrow will be 1 1/2 yrs since your accident. Seems like yesterday to us. I think of you often throughout the day to include many of my lectures to which you had a great patented response, "OK Dad". Sorry, but that is what Dad's do. I miss you and LOVE you dearly.

Hi, I am the flight attendant you meet on your flight on June 28...ATL to GSP. Thank you for sharing this website of your beautiful daughter; she will inspire me to live my life to the fullest. I wish you and your family lots of happy memories that will bring you peace.

I just caught the documentary "Flying Cheap" on Frontline's website, and felt that the documentary provided an excellent insight into the the current compromised state of the nation's airline industry. I am a news helicopter photographer in Maryland, and the pilot I fly with has been flying for over 40 years: I've learned a great deal about 'flying safe' through him. I will be joing your group as a result of watching this documentary, and I am terribly sorry for your loss.

Just wanted to drop a note to day I enjoyed meeting you on the plane from DC to Charlotte. I hope you and the others are successful in your efforts!
Did You Know?
Lorin was leading a project to dedicate the Princeton University Basketball Court as 'Carril Court' when she passed away. The dedication of the court occurred just weeks after her passing.
In the wake of the tragic plane crash that took Lorin's life along with 50 others, we have been heavily campaigning for our government and the aviation industry to improve their safety practices. For more information on our efforts to improve aviation safety and to find out how you can help, please visit www.3407memorial.com
