Out of the Shadow of 9/11: An Inspiring Tale of Escape and Transformation

When the planes hit the Twin Towers, Christina Ray Stanton’s life changed forever. As the new dawn of terrorism began, the Manhattan resident and her husband fearfully witnessed the impact just six blocks away from Ground Zero. As toxic dust spread into the air, the Stantons boarded a boat off the island and into the unknown.

9/11 totally reset the course of our lives. In the years since the attacks, interest in 9/11 has waned and education about it has been lacking. The 20-year anniversary of the worst attack on US soil is this year. Christina wants to re-engage the public with information about 9/11 via a new, unique voice and from a different perspective than typically offered.



Christina is a 9/11 historian, and Financial District resident who lived six blocks from the attacks, and an NYC licensed tour guide who has been giving tours of the World Trade Center complex since 1995.

Christina Ray Stanton is an award-winning author of two books and several articles and is a professional speaker who has appeared on TBN, Fox, CBN, and others. She is a licensed NYC tour guide of 25 years who specializes in 9/11 history. She and her husband founded Loving All Nations, a nonprofit organization that helps the world's poor and marginalized. 

9/11


In March 2020, Christina caught a near-fatal case of COVID-19. This could be from a compromised immune system stemming from the 9/11 fallout. These two calamities have left Christina with long-term health issues and were mentally challenging to overcome. But her faith provided strength and sustained her.

9/11

When the planes hit the Twin Towers, Christina Ray Stanton’s life changed forever. As the new dawn of terrorism began, the Manhattan resident and her husband fearfully witnessed the impact just six blocks away from Ground Zero.

With a close friend dead and their beloved dog clinging to life, the Stantons’ faith in God was tested. But after months away from her home, Christina trusted in a higher purpose to claim a stronger future. 

Out of the Shadow of 9/11: An Inspiring Tale of Escape and Transformation is a little-told story of the far-reaching collateral damage of September 11. As a longtime local and veteran tour guide, author Christina Ray Stanton shares an intimate journey of the harrowing event. Through her long road to physical, emotional, and spiritual recovery, you’ll discover your own inspiration in tough times.

If you like true stories, heart-wrenching journeys, and emotionally raw perspectives, then you’ll love Christina Ray Stanton’s honest perspective.

Covid


She Endured 9/11 . . . 
Would She Survive COVID-19?

It was March 2020, and rumors of a mysterious virus filled the air. But busy New York City tour guide Christina Ray Stanton paid little attention. After all, she and her husband had survived 9/11; it would take more than a virus to slow them—or their city—down.

But within days, Stanton saw her beloved Manhattan become a ghost town as fear of the novel coronavirus swept the nation. Seeking safety, she and her husband left the city to stay with family in Florida. They didn’t realize that rather than escaping the storm, they were heading into the eye of the hurricane: Stanton was already infected with COVID-19 and would soon be fighting for her life from a hospital bed hundreds of miles from home.

In this unforgettable first-person account, Stanton shares the physical, mental, and emotional agony she endured as the virus ravaged her body. Given a 50/50 chance of survival, she didn’t lose hope. She relied on her community and her faith to sustain her through the painful journey. Along the way, she learned new lessons in gratitude, emerging stronger, more resilient, and with a renewed sense of purpose.

How Do You Cope When You Are Told There Is No Hope

Paul Merritt was born with cystic fibrosis. He has not lived his life as a victim of disease but, rather, someone who has a passion for science, faith, and helping others to succeed - especially in the face of adversity.


Paul has had to overcome many challenges and much hardship just to survive. His motto in life is “Never let your obstacles become boundaries.”


Paul is an author of two books, The Best of Disease and Simple Ways to Improve, and his memoir Lifelong Turbulence: Calming the Storms of Life with God, Faith, Scripture, and Medicine.

Paul is a small business owner/operator and has a certificate in infectious disease and infection control.

In his interview, Paul shares the keys to getting over adversity in our lives - no matter what it may be. "The size of the fight in the dog is what gets you there."

Listening to Paul will make your day:

 



Living beyond expectations, Lifelong Turbulence is a story of adversity - thirty plus years of living with a chronic illness called Cystic Fibrosis – a genetic disease caused by inheriting mutated genes from parents, which affects 30,000 children and adults in the United States alone, along with numerous issues in those thirty years.

A struggle against living in poverty and even molestation. A powerful story that can motivate and show how to overcome the struggles of life by calming those storms with God, faith, scripture, and medicine. 

Lifelong Turbulence is the story not complete because life still goes on. It may leave some people wondering how, make others grateful, and possibly leave others outraged at what one person had to go through. 

The struggles are real, as well as God, faith, scripture, and medicine.  Look beyond the struggles of the past and see what lies ahead in life.



The Best of Disease and Simple Ways to Improve comes in many forms, in both physical and mental destruction. Some diseases are seen in cells through microscopes while others, through DNA sequencing.


The world is full of battles that we never see taking place; some inside our bodies and minds. With disease comes adversity leaving families shaken and torn, sometimes even broke from the healthcare costs accumulated fighting back against illness.


Life-long battles of those who struggle with cystic fibrosis can provide educational opportunities. These unique insights into the light among dark times are the physician's best asset to offer simple ways to improve.
