An Untold Tale of Resilience

An Untold Tale of Resilience

Boats of 9 11Kristi Kane

We are regularly reminded of the bad and the ugly that goes on in our world by just watching the news or surfing the internet. With the attack in Boston a few weeks old, there have been stories of those who did great good and put themselves in harm’s way to help another.

Even though these events are tragic, they are times that remind us that there is still good in the world. Ironically, it is an act of evil that brings it out. One of my favorite stories is “Boatlift,” the story of selfless volunteers with boats who evacuated nearly 500,000 people from Manhattan on that fateful day, September 11, 2001.

I could write about it, but I’d rather you watch it, and feel the emotions I did.
