Ron Hutchcraft Ministries, Inc. - Miracle on the Hudson - #8214 | Radio Program | A Life That Matters
I’ve been on airplanes where we had an emergency landing, but at least we had a runway to land on. When a flock of birds disabled the engines of US Air Flight 1549 as it was taking off from New York, there was no way their powerless plane could find a runway. In what the Governor of New York called “the miracle on the Hudson”, that plane landed intact on the Hudson River. And amazingly, all 155 on board got off safely, thanks in large part, to the people who converged on that fallen plane to rescue them including men in business suits and other commuters who were heading home on commuter ferry boats. They weren’t professional rescuers, but they were where the people in danger were, and as one Fox News anchor said, “Ordinary people became first responders.”
Ron Hutchcraft Ministries, Inc. - Shredding Memories - #8213 | Radio Program | A Life That Matters
Some people relive memories on New Year's Eve; some people make memories. But this past New Year's Eve, some people actually shredded their memories. New Yorkers and tourists were invited to bring bad memories from the old year to Times Square to be shredded. Some wrote "the stock market" or "cancer" on the piece of paper they shredded. One Yankees fan destroyed a poster of New York's longtime rival, the Boston Red Sox! One lady who shredded her boyfriend's e-mail telling her he was breaking up with her said, "This is the perfect way to move on from a bad year and a bad experience."

Ron Hutchcraft Ministries, Inc. - When Toys Are Smarter Than We Are - #8208 | Radio Program | A Life That Matters
When you buy your kids or grandkids toys these days, you'd better be sure you have batteries. They're usually not included and the toys usually require them. My daughter pointed out to me recently a helpful little feature some of her kids' toys have. It’s an indicator that their battery is low. She said, "It’s too bad people don't have that." I said, “That’s a thought worth pursuing.” So I will.
