Everyone Helped Everyone... : The Lift | Brian@GrowthWorks

Everyone Helped Everyone...

by Brian McDermott on 03/20/12

This is an 11-minute story about "people just doing what they had to do"... about "everyone having a little hero in them." It's a 9-11 story I had never heard before about scores of average citizens who answered a call for help to get a half million people off Manhattan in 9 hours after the destruction of the World Trade Center towers -- the largest sea evacuation in history. Narrated by Tom Hanks.

A wonderful remembrance of a horrific day. I didn't know about this. God Bless all the good Americans who were there to help.

Brian, Great story. Thanks for sharing. I am a 9.11 survivor who slowly made my way out of the city via hitching a ride home through the Mid-town Tunnel to Queens. We used to know each other through the Training Directors Forum, ancient times ago. Best to you.
