O my gosh! I was living just north of Boston at that time….I knew NOTHING of this! All those boat owners/drivers were incredible heros! I admire them…forever.

We had many, many co-workers who lost loved ones. I wish they had known about this rescue.

I went to NYC for a vacation in late September 2001, planned months earlier. I took one of the sightseeing cruises (Circleline, I think). Someone asked our guide about that day, he was telling us about how they were taking people off the island all day over to NJ and other areas.

Saw this not long after 9/11 and I wept. This still makes me cry, not just because of the senseless destruction but because of the capacity of humans to be heroes in extraordinary times.

I’ve seen this before but can’t see it too many times. THIS is the real legacy of 9/11.

Why can we not be this way with each other all of the time? The reaching out that day was incredible.
