It’s so hard to believe it’s been 14 years since that gorgeous, absolutely perfect September morning when the first hints of fall were in the air and everyone was in great spirits.
There are still stories to be told of the heroes of that dark day.
On September 11, 2001, more than a half a million people were evacuated from the lower end of Manhattan Island in just nine hours. This is the largest boatlift in history. In contrast, during WWII, over 330,000 people were evacuated from Dunkirk, but that was over nine days. Yet few people know the story of the 9/11 boatlift.
I hope that you will take a few minutes and watch this video. Then you will understand that countless unknown people were heroes on that sad day.
If you remember September 11, 2001, you will never forget it.
