Genelle Guzman, The Last Person Rescued on 9/11: Experienced Miracle After 27 Hours
… she asked his back. The voice stranger’s name was “Paul.” Since her head was pinned, she could not turn around to look at Paul, all she could do was hear his voice. But when she was finally pulled from the wreckage, “Paul” was nowhere to be found.
No one can really explain why Genelle Guzman McMillan lived and so many others did not.
There is no logic to why McMillan lived and others did not. No science explains why she did not slip into unconsciousness and die in silence.
McMillan was not stronger or smarter than those who died. She did not have special training about how to cope when buried by a 110-story skyscraper. She did not even have an especially loud voice to call for help through the knotted steel and jumbled concrete that fell around her.
Only one explanation really makes sense: If you believe in miracles, McMillan’s survival was just that – a miracle.
“I believe in miracles. I believe in second chances,” explains Guzman. “I also believe that adversity is a bridge to having a closer, deeper relationship with God. It’s not about what I want, it’s about what Jesus Christ wants from me.”
“There is a God. He is real.”
