Book Review: Thunder Dog by Michael Hingson with Susy Flory
I love to read and hear true stories from people who survived 9/11. Each story is different from another but every single one of those who survived shared the same miracle that they were blessed with, a new life.
The story of The Thunder Dog is no different. It speaks of the story of a blind person, Michael and his guide dog, Roselle during one of if not the most catastrophic event in the United States.
That fateful day started as any other day in the life of Michael. He, together with his guide dog, Roselle, is at work on the 78th floor of Tower 1 of the World Trade Center when the planes hit the towers. He is a living miracle who got to share how he survived the attack, how he moved on with his life and how blessed he is to have his dog, Roselle, who helped him get out of the building.
The Thunder Dog is a great story of hope, trust and friendship between Michael, Roselle and the other people they met along the 1,463 steps down towards their new lives.
