When we travel, we hope that our trip will be uneventful and we will arrive at our final destination without any issues.
The passengers on US Airways Flight 1549 boarded a flight to Charlotte on January 15th, 2009. They didn’t expect to join the history books that day.
I remember that day, otherwise known as Miracle on the Hudson. At that time, I was working for company whose office was located in Midtown Manhattan. Because we were on a higher number floor, we were able to see the plane crash into the Hudson River.
By the grace of G-d, a luck of fate and the quick actions of the first responders, none of the passengers or crew lost their lives that day.
I’m not usually a believe in miracles. They seem to be dreamlike, almost too good to be true. But a miracle occurred on January 15th, 2009 and for that, I believe in miracles.
