Prime Minister Justin Trudeau of Canada shared his thoughts (see image above) before the opening of the Musical “Come From Away” – the Broadway Musical that displays the humane engagements of people from La Jolla, Seattle, Washington D.C. and Toronto.
“In a heartbeat, 38 planes with 6,579 passengers were stranded in a remote town in Newfoundland. The locals opened their hearts and homes, hosting this international community of strangers–spurring unexpected camaraderie in extraordinary circumstances.” (source credit: comefromaway.com)
“The experiences of those who were welcomed in Newfoundland, Canada were not different to numerous experiences of others when they became strangers in other lands, met locales in distant places who welcomed them; humanity exists among men; extending a hand to someone who needed help regardless of origin and status is the real behavior that comes from the heart.”
