Wisdom Wednesday: 3 Things I Learned While My Plane Crashed

God bless girlfriends who know you, and know what lifts your spirit.

Ric Elias had a front-row seat on Flight 1549, the plane that crash-landed in the Hudson River in New York in January 2009. What went through his mind as the doomed plane went down?

Watch this.

What do you think? What did you learn? How would you change your life? What was your favorite lesson?


  1. Wow! I cried the entire time I watched. Made me sit back & ponder deeply about life, family & my purpose… humbling… a quiet place I am most at peace. Thanks for sharing.

  2. Loved this Erica! I can honestly say that my husband is the best dad I know and thankfully, he did not go through the experience that Ted did! I’ll be showing this to my hubby when he gets home.

  3. Hmm… very interesting. I think if faced with a situation like that. I’d regret not truly LIVING, enjoying life and trying things {not being afraid to fail}. I’ve just read Seth Godin’s book, ‘Poke the Box’ – and that’s exactly what I’m doing right now 🙂
