Blind 9/11 Survivor Shares Story of Survival and Teamwork to Aid Sandy Relief Efforts 

Michael Hingson #1 New York Times best-selling author of THUNDER DOG

Appears at the Center for Spiritual Living-Reno November 9th

On November 9, 2012 I have the honor to deliver a keynote address at the Center for Spiritual Living in Reno, Nevada at 7:00p.m.,

This is not just the story of how I escaped from the World Trade Center, but rather it is the story of how I got there, and it is the story of how I learned to cope with the attacks and to move on.  I offer life lessons others can use when confronted with major changes in their world.  I am pleased that the Center for Spiritual Living has chosen to donate a portion of the proceeds from this event to the American Red Cross to assist victims of Hurricane Sandy—I am honored to be able to help other survivors in this way.

Rev. Liesa Garcia, pastor of the Center, has told the press, “We are so honored to host Michael Hingson. His captivating story inspires us by demonstrating what’s possible through trust and working together under the most extreme circumstances. You can’t help but be forever changed by his story.”

This event is especially exciting because not only will there be a live audience, but he entire event will be streamed. I hope all of you who read this will come to the Center or login and join us remotely.  Here are the details.
