Miracle on the Hudson

Can't say that I can think of anything to post about tonight that is more significant than the miracle that occured this afternoon on the Hudson River in New York City. I am just blown away by the heroism that took place with numerous people that were all in the same place at the same time. What can instill our faith in the kindness and compassion of our fellow citizens more than what happened today?

I am amazed at how the pilots, flight attendants and passengers all worked together, followed directions and did everything they were supposed to do and it worked! I am amazed at the speed of the rescue crews. I am amazed at the fact that the plane landed so gently in the water. I am amazed that the worst injury was two broken legs, which is dreadful for that individual, but my goodness!! This could have been an incredible fatality. Rescue crews prepare for this type of disaster on a regular basis. I am so impressed with each detail of this scenario and the incredible outcome. Our God is an awesome God!!!

I read an article on that crash, honey, and couldn't believe it's been 27 years since that crash on the Potomac! Almost 30 years and I still remember that and cry. Truly cry because of the heroism of some of the people on shore. Smooches for Rachel,

Angels were on the wings. It is very hard to climb onto planes these days especially after 9-11. The passengers must have been terrified. Our God IS an awesome God!
