"Kevin Tuerff's firsthand account takes us inside a 9/11 story that is largely unknown and helps to restore our faith that human beings need not always be divided by our differences."

--Wade Goodwyn, NPR

"Kevin Tuerff tells a delightful and heartwarming story that takes us from one of the darkest days seen by America and the world, to a bright, safe, love-filled place that truly exists right here on earth. It is a story filled with hope for a better tomorrow."

--Jeanette Gutierrez, 9/11 Survivor

When Kevin Tuerff and his partner flew from France to New York City on September 11 th in 2001, they had no idea that the world--and their lives--would change forever.

When US airspace closed after the terrorist attacks, Kevin, who was experiencing doubts about organized religion, found himself in the small town of Gander, Newfoundland in Canada with thousands of other refugees or "come from aways."

Yet, when all seemed dark, the people of Gander rallied and the "plane people" experienced boundless acts of generosity. Channel of Peace tells the story of how Gander's compassion, then and now, has ignited a spirit of kindness that renewed Kevin's spirituality and has inspired 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, inspiring tale of hospitality, the strength of the human spirit, and hope.
