When Americans Come Together

I had no idea this was going on during those early confusing hours on 9-11, please meet a whole new group of heroes. Not only the skippers and crews of the boats, but the people they were evacuating. Shouldn’t this be shown to every Occupier who thinks the “1%” is so evil? Keep a tissue handy 🙂

Tom Hanks narrates the epic story of the 9/11 boatlift that evacuated half a million people from the stricken piers and seawalls of Lower Manhattan. Produced and directed by Eddie Rosenstein. Eyepop Productions, Inc.

BOATLIFT was executive produced by Stephen Flynn and Sean Burke and premiered on September 8th at the 9/11 Tenth Anniversary Summit: Remembrance/Renewal/Resilience in Washington. The Summit kicked off a national movement to foster community and national resilience in the face of future crises. See http://www.road2resilience.org to become a part of the campaign to build a more resilient world. The film was made with the generous support by philanthropist Adrienne Arsht, Chairman Emerita, TotalBank (www.arsht.com)
