Their are those moments you remember in life for the rest of your years on earth. Those big moments that stay with you weather good or bad. On September 11,2001 is a day everybody always ask where were you on that day and it's one you know exactly where you were. It was the day terrorist took down the world trade center and killed hundreds of innocent people. In this book we go through the day from the view of a man that was in the building and lived to tell his story. His story is different though,his name Michael Hingson and he was born blind. I learned so much from this book. He goes back between telling of that day in the stairway coming out of the trade center and back to his childhood and growing up blind. He tells us what it was like growing up with no sight. This book made me think of what it must be like to grow up and live never seeing anything. Now take yourself to that horrible day and imagine trying to get out a falling building with no sight. He tells of him and guide dog getting out and one story touched me in it. A lady was afraid they were all going to die in the stairway and a group gaithered around her and gave her comfort and his guide dog nudged the womans hand and she petted the dog. It makes you truly see how smart dogs are and what a wonderful comfort and help they truly can be to people. This is a great read and one of the best accounts of a person who survived 9/11.
I received this book from booksneeze.com free for my honest review.
