Sign of Things to Come

All angels from all universes must have been called to work their magic on that day. I know it's been said before, but come on! How on Earth did every single person survive this? How did the pilot know to land in the river instead of on the ground somewhere? How were the ferry captains able to maneuver those boats so gently? How were the divers able to jump in perfectly? How did all rescue workers save lives in perfect unison? How did the crew walk in waist deep water before leaving the plane? How did those passengers remain so calm and how did they have the courage to stand on wings floating in an icy death trap? Yes indeed. You can't deny it. All the angels responded to the 911 call. Was this a sign from heaven that everything is going to be O.K.?

Well I can honestly say Praise the Lord for all he has done that day, and his Angles. Such great gifts and talents he has given each of them and to us..

I was blown away.
Very impressed with that pilot, who obviously thought with lightening speed to land that plane the best he could under the circumstances.
I'm still shocked.

I think there are angels that walk the earth everyday. Some we can see and some we can't. I think that pilot was probably listening to his angel that day.

You can read it as you may, it helps soemtimes to play-believe.
I think it can be read as the incredible story of a plane and acompetent pilot.
Oh, how I'd like every pilot flying the plane I am in to be as competent as him!

He was one of the few specialits in the country on landing a plane without engines. He was THE pilot they needed that day.

I think of it as a reminder that there are amazing, talented and resourceful people all around us....sometimes we just don't see them.

Beautiful post.

It's called experience, team work and doing what one knows is right. It has very little to do with luck or angels or god.
