Remembering!!!!

I'm not sure how many, if any of you will watch this clip. Those that do will remember what makes this country great. Thanks to Doc for sending it to me.

9/11 Boatlift
- outstanding video clip
We certainly were busy watchingthe news right after 9/11, but we never saw this......BOAT-LIFT OF 9/11.....


You know, in the 11 years since this happened, this is the first time I've ever seen this...I don't even remember seeing/hearing about this evacuation on the news!
The fact is, it was all done in
9 hours...500,000 people!

This is a video well worth watching. The guy at the end (same guy who is at the beginning) has some great words to live by for all of us.

Watch till
the end. You won't regret it.


We will never forget what happened that day.

If you wish, please, pass this message along.

God Bless America!!!

Thanks for posting Doug. Even after all of this time and multiple 9/11 reviews I don't think very many people ever knew this miraculous story of ordinary Americans doing extraordinary things .

Great video, I was at work, we had just went into the break room, when we saw the news on the TV. Then we saw the second jet hit the world trade center, there was disbelief in what we all had seen. A very terrible day for America that we still have repercussions.
