Today is the one year anniversary of Sully landing U.S. Air Flight 1549, on the Hudson River.

I am especially thankful for having had the chance to meet Sully last May at Book Expo America, in the Javits Center — not far from the “impact” area on the Hudson.

He signed a brochure of his book “Highest Duty” for a relative of mine with cancer: “Bob, Never give up the ship” — Sully.

Hopefully, the people of Haiti can hang in there and stay together while help arrives, and hopefully President Obama can be like Sully for them.
