Wow! What a story.
Just from that interview, it sounds like they were a well prepared and organized family that really worked together. I definitely get a sense of not only a tight knit family but a daman good crew. Can you imagine the shock those kids must have been in? For that young man to keep his head and apply a tournequet, with everything else going on, and thinking he's going to lose his father. He was a very strong and brave young man on that day.
I look forward to learning more of their trials. Interesting subtitle to the book, as well.
