When Kevin Tuerff and his partner began their flight from France to New York City on September 11, 2001, they had no idea that the world was about to change forever. As US airspace closed in the aftermath of the terrorist attacks, Kevin found himself in the small town of Gander, Newfoundland, Canada with thousands of other refugees. Kevin’s firsthand account became his book, Channel of Peace: Stranded in Gander on 9/11, part of a Broadway musical, Come from Away, and a kindness movement, Pay It Forward 9/11.
