miracle on the hudson


I have been really touched this week watching and reading about the plane crash on the Hudson river. When I first saw the news all I could think about was how terrifying it must have been for anyone traveling on that plane with children. Having just flown with my baby I could imagine it all too well. It is SUCH a miracle that everyone is ok, including a 9 month old baby boy. The following are two really well done news pieces that tell the story. I cried my eyes out through both of them.

From The New York Times:
