Add to his life a very special, very well trained dog with the perfect temperament and they were an unbeatable duo. It was this duo that descended over 1400 steps when the World Trade Center was hit on Sept. 11, 2001. During that time not only Michael, but also Roselle offered hope and comfort, but also calmed people when they got discouraged. I think you will enjoy the story about this team.
So why didn’t I give it a 5 star rating. I got a bit tired of Michael saying that blind people aren’t always given a chance and they can do anything a sighted person can. Granted, there are some people that will rise above the crowd no matter what. But there are also those that take defeat and get beaten down by it. The rules covering the treatment of the blind may not be fair, but hopefully the world is changing and men of Michael’s caliber would be welcome anywhere. Otherwise, gather your Guide dogs and make some noise as many other groups have had to do.
