The format of the book, which is similar to Thursdays with Morrie, gave me the insight to understand why it was written in the first place, while the content of the book reminded me to be thankful for life and its blessings, to value that which is precious without sweating the small stuff. Not only was Captain Joe Townsend's physical survival miraculous, a fact clearly evident after viewing photos of the twisted remains of the airplane he was piloting, but his perseverance when facing seemingly insurmountable obstacles and his willingness to face the future afterwards with a sense of hopefulness was a miracle as well. This is an exceptionally well-written story about someone who lived through devastating personal tragedy and found the faith and fortitude to face the future with unflagging optimism. We can all learn invaluable lessons from Captain Joe.
I would have said before this that it would be impossible to write this kind of story and leave the reader with no sense of compassion toward the author, no feeling of grief and loss and triumph at the end. But alas, it's not impossible at all. This story had so much potential to be told in a way that would move a reader's heart... but instead was wasted on telling us the facts rather than showing us what this was like. I have actually felt more emotion reading newspaper stories.
