In the 'Seventeen Second Miracle', Rex Connor learns in one summer afternoon in 1970 when his gaze is diverted for just "17" seconds, what tragedy can happen. Forty years later the waves of that day still ripple through the lives of many people, including Rex's son, Cole.
Cole Connor is a patient teacher and he has long shared his father's story with those in need. This fall, Cole has invited three struggling teenagers to learn about Rex Connor - and the 'Seventeen Second Miracle'.
The teens will hear how Rex remade his life seventeen seconds at a time-by performing small acts of kindness that sometimes had life-altering consequences. As Cole's student's learn, miracles can happen-with a little help from you. When this knowledge is put to a surprising test, what the students discover may transform your world, as it did theirs. A 'Seventeen Second Miracle' could change your life-if you let it.
