I was moved by Michael Hingson’s keynote presentation at the American Councel of the Blind’s national convention last year in Florida. Michael’s very personal and inspirational story recounts his experience as he escaped the fall of the WTC. I had the honour to meet Michael briefly an hour or two after his address to ACB members. He struck me as an extremely genuine natural sort of chap.
