Faith. Trust. Triumph.
Every moment in Michael Hingson’s and Roselle’s lives seemed
to lead up to this day. When one of four hijacked planes flew into the World
Trade Center’s north tower on September 11, 2001, Michael Hingson, a district
sales manager for a data protection and network security systems company, was
sitting down for a meeting. His guide dog, Roselle, was at his feet. Paired for
twenty-one months, man and dog spent that time forging a bond of trust, much
like police partners who trust their lives to each other.
Michael couldn’t see a thing, but he could hear the sounds
of shattering glass, falling debris, and terrified people flooding around him
and Roselle. However, Roselle sat calmly beside him. In that moment, Michael
chose to trust Roselle’s judgment and not to panic. They were a team.
Thunder Dog is a
story that will forever change your spirit and your perspective. It illuminates
Hingson’s lifelong determination to achieve parity in a sighted world and how
the rare trust between a man and his guide dog can inspire an unshakable faith
in each one of us.
