September 11th and the Hospitable People of Gander, Newfoundland

This town of 10,000 hosted 6,500 plus Americans when all US flights were grounded.  When flyers stepped off of their planes, Gander’s citizens met them with homemade bagged lunches. The town converted its schools and large buildings into temporary shelters, and when those lodgings filled up, citizens took strangers into their homes. Medical personnel saw patients and filled prescriptions free of charge.
