Remembering Flight 111   
Budge, at her home in Nova Scotia, with Tenley GIBSON'94, last October.

It has been many years since the airplane disaster happened off the coast of Nova Scotia. Written in gratitude and in celebration of the thousands of lives that were impacted by the tragedy, the poems reflect the courage and generosity of the human spirit.
