A Gander at Unity: Delta 15

This post is dedicated to the inspirational story of the Flight Delta 15. Though many of us have difficulty see past the normal competition of the neighboring Canadians this story must be told of the unity between our country and theirs on the day of 9/11/01.

Delta 15 was just as unfortunate as many who were requested to land immediately after the first attack was made on September 11th. In their hast of the situation pilots decided that Gander would be as good of place as any to make a safe landing. Though it was 400 miles away it was the closest available landing strip.

The flight attendents and airline staff made all attempts to keep the passangers calm in this situation and decided not to tell them exactly what was going on until they landed. Though they were all nerveous about the flight the great community of Gander and Lewisporte added the American flight with no questions asked and no problems. This is a great story of people banning together in great times of need and giving without any expectations in return.

Though the passangers were nervous at first on their three day journey; they learned to ban together and became close in the end. Read this Story in full and learn about the Delta 15 fund and how it was created, who it is for, and why this type of unity should be celebrated.

Surviving 9/11: Tower One a Nightmare I’ll Remember

This is the dedicated to Survivor Kim King-

Kim King worked in Tower One of the World Trade Center. She was on the 70th floor when the tragedy struck and by the hand of “God” through her calm thinking and the hand of others she is safe today.

Her unknowing courage and concern for others make her a hero in the eyes of many. Kim shared her story on 9/11 injured with the world to give the world her eye witness accounts of the tragedy and very real catastrophe of 9/11. Her story struck more emotions in me than I thought possible. But what she didn’t  tell you was her instinct to help her co-workers and friends. Her ongoing concern for their safety above her own.

She tells of Guardian angels; which we know there were many that day…but she was one of them. She was an angel for her friends Jill, and Linda. By keeping them with her; by being there she shared her strength with others. It is easy to see what others are doing to help the world but we so often fail to see our own good deeds. Today I want to thank her for her courage, and kindness, her love for those around her that helped them make it through that terrible tragedy.

If you would like to read Kim King’s Story you can read it at: 9/11 Injured. 

Each day we will feature a new survior or a story of those showing courage. So come back and join us.

Until next time,

Hold on to what you have and Cherish it….

My Story

It took me a while to share my voice with the world. I wasn’t sure what I had to contribute to the victims. What I could share with the world that would make some difference in there lives. Each day since September 11, 2001 I have thought of it in some way an I guess it has affected me greatly. I have designed this blog in the hope that others would share their feelings, thoughts, and storys with us too.

On that day I sat in front of the TV stund at what I saw. Though I didn’t know anyone there I found myself crying uncontrollably at the chaos and distruction of others action. I can’t understand why we do the things we do and why we as humans are so incrediably violent. Why we hurt others; why we have war, why peace is not first on our agenda.

My heart goes out to all that suffered from this terrible event. I can’t imagine what they are feeling now and how it has affected them and their lives. I hope that our country can work together to fix what has been distroyed and make this a better place for ourselves, our children, and generations to come.

If you have comments, or stories you wish to share; things you are doing for the victims, communities that are making a difference share them with us. We would love to hear it!

Until next time,

Hold on to what you have and cherish each day…
