Some 14 years ago all eyes were on the Twin Towers. But in the midst of the horror, heroes arose beyond the emergency responders. They were just Americans – plain everyday Americans.
In a story little known, a call was sent by the Coast Guard for help to evacuate lower Manhattan, and in minutes over 100 vessels of all sizes rushed to assist. The overwhelming support to get the people to safety will give you chills of pride.
This video “Boat Lift of 9/11” was the largest sea rescue in modern history, surpassing that in WW II. It carried about 500,000 people to safety in 9 hours!
This is a testament to true American exceptionalism and should give every viewer real hope that America can survive.
