We’ve all heard about the firemen, those brave men who ran into the burning towers and lost their lives, but what about the flight attendants? If you’re a flight attendant, I’m sure, at some point, you’ve wondered why no one has addressed those brave men and women who lost their lives on the very same day? I know I have.
Finally, someone has written a book, a truly amazing book, that tells the personal story of several aviation employees – some who died, others whose job descriptions were transformed before their eyes, and countless more whose entire lives were forever altered on September 11th, 2001. This was a book I could not put down. It was a book I felt honored to read. It was a book that touched me in a way that no other book has in a long time. It was a book that made me proud of what I do and the people I do it with. It is also a book that donates all profits to aviation charities…
We want to promote aviation organizations (including charities and community service projects) that are providing opportunities for people to “move forward by doing for others.” We begin with two of the country’s leading aviation charities, WINGS FOUNDATION, INC, assisting American Airlines Flight Attendants, and CAUSE FOUNDATION, assisting United Airlines Flight Attendants. To learn more about these charities and the work they are doing – and to explore opportunities to get involved with them, click the link – http://www.reclaimingthesky.com/
