In 25 years of working or just passing through Times Square I have never experienced SILENCE…
The high-wire act with brother & sister Nik & Lijana Wallenda was an emotional roller coaster.
The walk marked Lijana’s first high-wire act since 2017 rehearsal accident, which left her severely injured with every bone in her face broken.
A crowd of New Yorkers anxiously watched as Nik and Lijana Wallenda — seventh-generation members of the famed Flying Wallendas circus family — attempted to cross a 1,300-foot-long wire, strung between two skyscrapers in Times Square on Sunday night.
The never-before-attempted stunt was broadcast live on ABC in a two-hour special, Highwire Live in Times Square, hosted by Erin Andrews and Michael Strahan
They beat out every network that night!
Working with this whole family gave me a feeling that if this woman could get back up there with all she has been through, then I too have the faith to move mountains.
It all started with a mustard seed :)
