Flying in a plane that’s going down is one of the biggest fears I have in my entire life. Part of what makes it so terrifying is that in my mind, it’s over at that point—even if we crash land in the ocean, the chances are good that the landing will be rough enough to either injure or kill me. If only I had the blind, insane faith that this man did. Nobody tell him the truth, this is too pure.
