Captain Sully: "People need to feel good again"

"We all have some Sully Sullenberger inside of us." So said THE TYGRRRR EXPRESS blog ... and I'd like to think it's true.

"The Miracle on the Hudson" occurred when Captain Sullenberger saved 150 lives while safely landing the airplane he was piloting on the Hudson River:
While the story of how he and his crew safely landed a plane in the Hudson River has been told over and over, it was an appearance on 60 Minutes that had me fully grasping his significance.

I had not watched 60 Minutes in years, but he was the feature story. I had to watch. Out of all of his appearances, this one was the most meaningful. He was asked why people were so drawn to this story.

His response was simple, truthful, and important.

“People need to feel good again. They need to feel a sense of hope.”

Times are tough. People are starving for good news. They do not need a ten course meal of it. They will settle for bread crumbs.
"We all have some Sully Sullenberger inside of us." There are heroes out there....

H/T to Mom for sending along the graphic

We agree entirely; actually, we have created a video ( to promote people who are applying their experience and ethic in their jobs, bringing to our world good actions; which means for all of us, that the movies' heroes are real. End of the road for aggressive behaviors and bad news!. this world needs people applying values and good policies; therefore, these won't be just for paper printing, kinder garden classes or touching movies.
We invite you to see our page, where you can write your name at the video story; so you can have fun being part of it, and also it allows you to vote for the real nowadays heroism.
