The Great Boatlift of 9-11: Everybody Helped Everyone...

by Brian McDermott on 09/11/14

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 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.

This story needs to be seen. For 14 years we have mourned this tragedy, but did not know of the heroism that took place on the water. A testimony to putting together a plan to meet a need. Remarkable!
