I HEART Utah Hospital Task Force

Through some sort of weird miracle.... our pilot of OUR PLANE told them he wouldn't get off the tarmac without these kids and they didn't shoot him.

I hear we have 2 hours to get PM sigs. PRAY.

I swear - I don't make this stuff up. This is REALLY my life...

That's not exactly how it went down... Its actually better. I was on the Tarmac from wheels down to wheels up and it was miracle after miracle. 1)the plane made it here in the first place 2) the pilot agreed to stay. 3) the tarmac commander agreed to let him stay, so long as he moved the plan to the "south 40" and was in the air no later then 1100. 4) the flight attendants agreed to stay 5) the charter company agreed to have the plane stay. 1100 came and went and there Sun Country N806SY sat in spot #2 dwarfed by her giant neighboring C-17s. At this point people are starting to sweat, airplanes are backing up both on the ground and in the air, company bosses are needing their plane back, etc, etc! The ICE agent in charge was the one saying he'd ground this plane before hed let it go empty, he was truly awesome. The pilot was great but the list of those who contributed to backing up the single most busy piece of tarmac in the entire world was long. From the President of the country, to the JAG adoption specialist, to the taxi driver who broke every natural law to get the packets from the embassy to the airport - there were countless miracles. I put one little boy named Ramone in the seat on the plane and he said in his broken english. "I go home". That is what its all about.
