    Summary:

    A fully revised and updated paperback edition featuring over twenty colour photographs. When Kevin Tuerff and his partner boarded their flight from France to New York City on September 11, 2001, they had no idea that a few hours later the world - and their lives - would change forever. After U.S. airspace closed following the terrorist attacks, Kevin, who had been experiencing doubts about organized religion, found himself in the small town of Gander, Newfoundland, with thousands of other refugees or "come from aways." Channel of Peace is a beautiful account of how the people of Gander rallied with boundless acts of generosity and compassion for the "plane people," renewing Kevin's spirituality and inspiring him to organize 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, uplifting tale of goodwill, the strength of the human spirit, and hope.
