I was emailed this incredible YouTube of a large boat rescue after the attack on 9/11.  At first I didn’t know if I wanted to see another 9/11 video, but I’m glad I decided to.  It greatly moved me to see all these people working together to help people get off of Manhattan after the planes flew into the Twin towers of the World Trade Center. At the time no one knew if the island was being bombed or what exacting was happening.

It’s easy to see the dark side of life when you watch the news.  A video like this reminds us how good most people basically are and many heroes came out of 9/11.  500,000 people were evacuated off Manhattan in less than nine hours.  It was the biggest water evacuation in history.

I hope you find it as moving as I did.
