Wow! I just saw a video of some unsung heroes from the New York City area. There are many heroes that emerged in the 9/11 attacks on the World Trade Center. Most of us know the “First Responders” in the NYPD and NYFD. I did not know that there was a massive boatlift rescuing in panicking people trying to get off Manhattan Island when all other modes of transportation were shut down.


You NEED to watch this video and reawaken your pride in being an American.
