Miracle On The Hudson
This world seems like a bad place to live sometimes. We have to deal with terrorism, war, a failing economy due to the greed and ignorance of some people and just a derth of civil human beings. Just when things couldn't get any worse a miracle occurs. This miracle came in the form of a plane that landed in the Hudson River this week. It hadn't meant to be so, but fate had other ideas. Thanks to the skill and calm demeanor of one Chesley (Sully) Sullenberger, that plane almost gracefully came down just over the George Washington Bridge. Each and every passenger and flight staff were quickly evacuated, but not until Captain Sulley made sure that no one was left on that sinking plane. Ferry boats, both large and small came within minutes to scoop passengers off of the plane's wing and those who escaped into rafts. Nary a soul was lost or even badly hurt that day which only goes to prove that miracles do happen and that this world really isn't such a bad place to live afterall.
