Summary
"When Kevin Tuerff and his partner flew from France to New York City on September 11th in 2001, they had no idea that the world - and their lives - would change forever. When US airspace closed after the terrorist attacks, Kevin, who was experiencing doubts about organized religion, found himself in the small town of Gander, Newfoundland in Canada with thousands of other refugees or "come from aways." Yet, when all seemed dark, the people of Gander rallied and the "plane people" experienced boundless acts of generosity. Channel of Peace tells the story of how Gander's compassion, then and now, has ignited a spirit of kindness that renewed Kevin's spirituality and has inspired an annual and growing "giving back" day. ​His story, along with others, has reached thousands of people when it was incorporated into the Broadway musical Come From Away. In Channel of Peace: Stranded in Gander on 9/11 you will find an unforgettable, inspiring tale of hospitality, the strength of the human spirit, and hope."--Publisher description
