Author and Speaker Michael Hingson Inspires After Surviving 9/11 Attacks

Picture of Michael Hingson with his guide dogWhen tragedy strikes, we are all faced with the choice of how to respond. Thirteen years ago today, Michael Hingson, blind since birth, walked down 78 flights of stairs with his guide dog Roselle to escape the collapsing World Trade Center. Since that fateful day, Hingson has devoted his life to inspiring and motivating others.

In an interview with the Los Altos Town Crier this week, Hingson says “My purpose is to help people learn teamwork, learn to trust each other and to live by example.” Hingson’s book about his experience, Thunder Dogs, debuted on The NY Times best-seller list in its first week of release. He incorporates his experience surviving the 9/11 attacks with themes of trust and teamwork, the human-animal bond, moving from diversity to inclusion and others in his speaking engagements.
