For 27 hours Genelle Guzman-McMillan was trapped in the rubble of Tower One when it collapsed on September 11, 2001. Before rescue workers found her, a stranger named Paul found Genelle and stayed with her. Paul held her hand and encouraged her while she was pinned beneath layers of concrete, iron and glass. However, when Genelle was freed Paul was nowhere to be found. No one on the scene knew who he was. The only answer that made sense to Genelle was that Paul was an angel--sent to rescue and comfort her, and grant her the chance to live the life she had prayed to while buried alive. Angel in the Rubble tells Genelle's harrowing and inspiring story from that fateful day, to how she has rededicated her life to the Lord since that time.
The Miraculous Gift of a Second Chance
Am I dead?
But I was in too much pain to be dead, right? I put my left hand right up to my face, but I couldnt see even a hint of it. As I lay on my right side, my right arm and leg were pinned underneath me. A huge slab of concrete pressed against my head. Mustering all my strength, I pushed against it. Nothing. With my left hand, I could feel that an immense steel beam encased the rest of my body.
I was sealed in a coffin of concrete and steel. I screamed for help, but my voice went nowhere. I was alone. Completely alone. ' For twenty-seven hours, Genelle remained below the surface of Tower Ones rubble. During this time, she couldnt help but reflect on the life shed lived and how shed drifted from the faith she once knew. One of her most painful regrets was that shed left her daughter behind in Trinidad while she pursued her dream of singing and dancing in America. As death now seemed certain, she feared where it would take her. And then she remembered witnessing the miraculous recovery of her aunt when she was a child in Trinidad. Maybe . . . just maybe, God had a miracle for her as well.
For hours she prayed, remembering each detail of her walk away from the faith shed known as a child. She begged God to forgive her—accepting that she may soon die, but praying for the miracle of life and a chance to live that life with a new purpose and direction.
God answered her prayer by sending an angel to sustain her. Now living in the light, Genelle is making good on the promises she made in the dark while buried in the rubble.
Angel in the Rubble is a riveting, simply-told story of strength, hope, and miracles by a simple, yet extraordinary, woman. It strengthened my faith in God, humanity, and those American values that make the USA the remarkable country it is. It's a potent shot of hope, whether Jew or Gentile, Muslim or Atheist.
