In 1970, when she was just 13-years-old, Lynda Fishman’s life was altered forever. An Air Canada plane travelling from Montreal to Los Angeles crashed in Toronto, Ontario – everyone died including Fishman’s mother and two younger sisters. The loss, of course, was devastating. Her father fell into a deep depression and she was essentially left to fend for herself.
Fishman recounts this terrible time - and the four decades since - in her moving book Repairing Rainbows: A True Story of Family, Tragedy and Choices
A powerful speaker, Fishman tells her story and talks about her eight key strategies for people who want to CHOOSE LIFE over sadness, bitterness or feeling defeated – for people who want to choose to bounce back when life has knocked them down – for people who want to choose happiness and success. She emphasizes how you have to find a way to move forward, with all situations, and to love and have faith in G-d, and to truly believe that G-d is there for us no matter what we are faced with in life.
Lynda Fishman’s life came to a tragic halt when her mother and two younger sisters were killed in a plane crash. In this fascinating firsthand account, she candidly describes the agonizing memories, deafening silence and endless hardships that are the fallout of incredible loss
