BOAT LIFT – An Untold Tale of 9/11 Resilience Monday, September 13, 2021
There’s something about bearing witness. Even if you’re thinking you’ve had your fill of the memorials for 9/11 and you don’t know this story, please watch this. As someone remarked, “I watch this every year to remember the goodness of so many.” This testimony to the best of the human spirit was the largest sea evacuation in history, larger than the evacuating of Dunkirk, where 339,000 were rescued in 9 days; on 9/11, nearly 500,000 were rescued in less than 9 hours. Do yourself another favor and read the details and I dare you to stay dry-eyed: The great boat lift of 9/11.
